When many people think of the American Civil War, they immediately think of the southern states. However, local ties to the war bring the reality of it home to Ontario County. Thousands of men from New York State served in the military during that time, and the Clapp brothers who hail from Phelps, NY are from one family who answered the call of duty. Ron Grube, Board Trustee of the Phelps Historical Society, will present a program about the Clapp Brothers at the Howe House. Refreshments will be served.
