Emancipation Watch Night
Commemoration in Peterboro on
December 31st
On the eve of the Sesquicentennial of the Thirteenth Amendment, Owen Corpin will, once again, prepare the
watch fire and provide the program for the Watch Night commemoration at 4 p.m. Wednesday, December 31,
2014. The program will begin at the Smithfield Community Center, 5255 Pleasant Valley Road, Peterboro NY
13134 and will move to the watch fire site on the Peterboro Green. Retired Navy Commander Owen Corpin, a
member of the National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum and a descendant of 19th Century freedom seekers
who came to Peterboro, organized the Watch Night commemoration on the 150th anniversary of the first Watch
Night in 1862.

Through the night of December 31, 1862, people of the North and South waited through the night to see if
President Abraham Lincoln would issue the Emancipation Proclamation, freeing slaves in the states of rebellion.
Lincoln had shared his first draft with his Cabinet as early as September 22, 1862. A facsimile of that Preliminary
Emancipation Proclamation gifted to the National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum by the New York State
Museum will be on display at the Smithfield Community Center. The First Steps to Freedom: Abraham Lincoln’s
Emancipation Proclamation brochures from Albany explaining the document and Gerrit Smith’s role in preserving
the treasure will be distributed.

Watch Night on New Year’s Eve 2014 ushers in the Sesquicentennial Year of the end of the Civil War, the
Thirteenth Amendment which abolished slavery in the United States, and the assassination of President Lincoln.
2015 heritage events in Peterboro will include a processional honoring veterans of the Civil War, programs about
Appomattox, and Lincoln’s death at the 23rd Annual Civil War Weekend June 13 & 14. In October 2015 the
National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum will be hosting Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle. The
film and discussion series is supported by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History and the National
Endowment for the Humanities, and addresses the continuation of the struggle for freedom after the Emancipation
Proclamation and the Thirteenth Amendment.  The National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum is planning a
special public weekend October 23-24 to feature Abraham Lincoln: The Great Emancipator.

The public is encouraged to join in this free Sesquicentennial observance of the Emancipation Proclamation.
Dress warmly! Bring a flashlight! For more information: Owen Corpin at 315-750-6561 or nahofm1835@gmail.com
New York State Police Announce More
Troopers Will be Monitoring the Roads
this Holiday Season
STATE POLICE PRESS RELEASE

The New York State Police will have additional troopers on the roads this holiday season in an effort to
crackdown on drunk driving.

The New York State Police will again participate in the national “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign,
from Friday, December 12, 2014 through Thursday, January 1, 2015. Drivers can expect to see sobriety
checkpoints along with more troopers on major highways during the campaign. Unmarked State Police patrol
vehicles will also be on the roads.

Superintendent Joseph A. D’Amico said, “Safety comes first for the New York State Police for our troopers
and the drivers and passengers we serve on New York State’s roadways. We want everyone to have a happy
holiday - but we also want you to have a safe one. Impaired drivers cause needless deaths and injuries. Have
a plan and you could save a life – maybe even your own.”

In addition to the DWI checkpoints and patrols, Troopers will be watching for distracted or impaired drivers,
vehicle occupants who are not properly buckled up and drivers violating the “Move Over Law,” which requires
motorists to exercise extreme caution when passing emergency vehicles that are stopped in or on the side of
the road.

During last year’s campaign, State Police issued more than 38,000 tickets. More than 630 people were charged
with DWIs, more than 11,000 drivers were ticketed for speeding and 1,500 drivers were caught for distracted
driving.

The facts are grim: During the 2012 holiday period, 1,698 people nationwide were killed on the road, with
almost a third of the fatalities related to drunk-driving. On Christmas Day that year, 26 people were killed by drunk
drivers.

To keep our roads safer this holiday season, the New York State Police and National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration offer these tips:

· Plan a safe way home before the celebrating begins;
· Before drinking, designate a sober driver;
· If you’re impaired, use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation;
· Use your community’s sober ride program;
· If you happen to see a drunk driver on the road, don’t hesitate to contact local law enforcement;
· If you know someone who is about to drive or ride while impaired, take their keys and help them make
other arrangements to get to their destination safely.

Also, as part of the enhanced enforcement holiday initiative, the New York State Police today will participate
in a “Safety Without Borders” campaign in partnership with bordering U.S. and Canadian law enforcement
agencies.

“Safety Without Borders" is a highly visible traffic safety enforcement initiative that emphasizes the shared goal
of safe roadways regardless of jurisdictions. The following law enforcement agencies will be participating in this
year's campaign; Vermont State Police, Maine State Police, New Hampshire State Police, Ontario Provincial
Police and Sûreté du Québec. Law enforcement officials will be concentrating on offenses that result in the
greatest contribution to serious and sometimes fatal collisions, with particular attention to impaired driving,
aggressive driving, distracted driving, Move-Over Law violations and improper seat belt use.

This is the third “Safety Without Borders” program conducted during 2014 – previous campaigns took place in
April and June, during which participating agencies issued nearly 3,000 tickets. There were no fatal accident
investigations that took place during the programs, showing that this partnership is successful in decreasing
fatalities throughout the multi-state and Canadian border region. New York has participated in the program
since 1994.
