Plattsburgh further served as President William McKinley’s summer White House and hosted the Catholic Summer School of America.
“We had President Taft in a parade on Margaret Street,” Julian said.
The undertaking wasn’t without its setbacks, such as when Julian’s laptop died for three months.
At times, she wondered what she had gotten herself into.
“It took the better part of a year.”
In fact, it never really felt like it came together until a month after she turned in the manuscript.
Yet the project was, ultimately, fun, and Julian would like to do some more writing.
“I never thought I would do that.”
The book is available at www.arcadiapublishing.com, the Corner-Stone Book Shop in downtown Plattsburgh, Amazon, the Clinton County Historical Association, Battle of Plattsburgh War of 1812 Museum, Yandos and Barnes and Noble.
