A nicely-written book filled with vignettes of Newmarket and area history. A battle sword, lost gold, stolen tombstones, old stores, busy hotels, and famous folk from the distant past: Samuel Morse demonstrating his telegraph, the people and places involved in the 1837 Rebellion, a guy George Washington wanted to hang, and immediate relatives of "Buffalo Bill" Cody, to name a few. Fascinating stuff.
