Private Walter Allison

Private Walter Allison was one of Newburgh’s favorite sons – first as a Goldback football star, then as a private in World War I one hundred years ago. Allison was recently memorialized at the Newburgh Brewing Company with his own special beer and a launch event featuring several Living Historians, on hand to fill in the historical blanks in a palpably entertaining fashion. Our Military Hero, Private Walter Allison.
