Henry Christman, an Albany newspaperman who lived on Shaver Pond Road in the Town of Grafton, and who was a friend there of Granville Hicks (author of Small Town and many other books and articles), wrote Tin Horns and Calico, the definitive book on the anti-rent war.
My high school history courses never even mentioned the Anti-Rent War. I hope that has changed for area schools, since it is a very important part of this area's history.
