MILLERTON — The tragedy and triumph that was World War I will be on display at the final Dutchess County 2018 Historic Tavern Trail “Year of the Veteran” event at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 21, at the American Legion Post 178 in Millerton.

The tale will be told thru war-time images and discussions of three North East residents: one who survived and two who did not. The last were killed some 10 miles apart on the same day, November 1, 1918, only 10 days before the end of the war.
