memories of the Civil War continued into the twentieth century. William
Horton, son of Eliza Horton,
lived to be White Plains' oldest commuter. Horton fought with the
6th NY Heavy Artillery for three years. After the war, he worked for
the United States Treasury for 57 years. Near the end of that time,
newspaper spoke to him about his life, although by then his years
of commuting were of more interest than his service to the Union.
