October 23 – Happy Birthday Dr. David Shephard

unknownToday is the birthday of the only Amsterdam resident to serve in the legendary “Minutemen” regiment during the American Revolution. Dr. David Shephard was at Lexington and Concord serving as the regimental surgeon. He later moved to Amsterdam and became a farmer. His farmland is now a cemetery.

Which Cemetery?

I tell you in the new 2nd Edition of my book “A Year’s Worth of Amsterdam NY Birthdays” which will be available for sale on Saturday, December 10, 2016. If you’d like to receive a copy from the first printing, fill out this reservation form and someone will contact you. The book will also be on sale at Liberty Fresh Market (4867 NY Route 30, Amsterdam, NY 12010) beginning that same day!
