The Historical Association of Lewiston welcomes Niagara County Historian Catherine Emerson, who will speak on "Michael Huskey, the Unforgotten Sailor," at a free event Monday.
Huskey was approved for this nation's highest military honor for valor in a battle in Mississippi in 1863. He died the following year in a Memphis hospital and never received his Medal of Honor.
Hear about this local story and the Niagara County Historian's Office efforts to honor a true American hero.
The free event begins at 6:30 p.m. inside the Barton Hill Hotel, 100 Center St., Lewiston. Refreshments will be served. All are welcome to attend.
