Many of the photos accompanying the articles have never appeared in print.

Perseverance & Vigilance: The History of the Old Decker Stone House
Published by Minisink Press
Cost $19.95. Add $4.80 for shipping and handling.
“Perseverance & Vigilance” traces the history of the 1793 Fort Decker building from early in the Revolutionary War, to the raids of the infamous Mohawk warrior-statesman Joseph Brant, to the era of the Delaware and Hudson Canal, when the stone structure served as a hotel for the canal’s founders and engineers. It also includes genealogies of people who have lived in and owned the building over the last 200 years, and speculates on the identity of the mysterious spirit that regularly turns on the building’s lights.
Today, the Fort Decker building located at 127 West Main St. in Port Jervis is operated by the Minisink Valley Historical Society as a museum of history.
The Rebellion of Miss Lucy Ann Lobdell

Hard-Cover Cost $20.00
Soft-Cover Cost $10.00
DEATH OF A MODERN DIANA.
So reads the headline of Lucy Lobdell’s obituary in the New York Times, October 7, 1870. As obits go, it was enormous: 1500 words, detailing what the Times knew of Lucy’s life, from her backwoods upbringing to her dance school, where, posing as a man, she won the heart of a young woman. But that was just the start of the trouble, and Lucy’s obit would have been larger still if the Times had known about her years on the western frontier; her arrest and trial for the crime of wearing men’s clothes; or her jailbreak engineered by her wife, Marie Perry, to whom she had been married by an unsuspecting judge.
Lucy lived at a time when women did not commonly travel unescorted, carry a rifle, sit down in bars, or have romantic liaisons with other women. Lucy did these things in a personal quest — to work and be paid, to wear what she wanted, and love whomever she cared to. But to gain those freedoms she had to endure public scorn and wrestle with a sexual identity whose vocabulary had yet to be invented. Considering her notoriety at the time, it is surprising that her story has fallen so far from view.
