Friends of Historic Saugerties Presents:

Ulster County’s Forgotten Civil War hero:   George Henry Sharpe

Kingstonian George Sharpe wore many hats during his lifetime, from Colonel of Ulster County’s 120th Infantry to founder of our modern military intelligence system, from America’s first CIA agent and a Civil War spy to the US Marshall that tackled the Boss Tweed Ring.  

Known for his lively and fast-paced presentations, Paul T. O’Neill, Ulster Co. Commissioner of Jurors and a history enthusiast will share his research on Sharpe in an illustrated presentation that will surely provide new and interesting insights on this fascinating local hero.

All Friends of Historic Saugerties are open to anyone who is interested in history!
