In this 33rd History Sketchbook, Héritage Sutton recalls that several young Suttonites took part in the Civil War of 1861-1865. The article sheds light on their motivations and relives the atmosphere of this landmark period in American history. This booklet also shines the spotlight on the busy lives of Réal Beaulac and Shirley Newell as well as on the descendants of Patrick Donlon and Mary O’Brien, some of whom still live in the region and operate a farm straddling the border with Richford. Lastly, a final article tells about the Saturday Market which turned 50 in 2020 and whose popularity is unabated.
