Anyone who hails from New York's North Country, especially St. Lawrence and Jefferson Counties, knows that the region is full of fun, fascinating people. But who were the most famous, the most influential or the most intriguing of this motley crew? Perhaps it was President Eisenhower's secretary of state; the man who fought for his life during a dangerous balloon ride; the football coach who continually led his team to victory; or the family of seven brothers who defended the United States in World War II. You be the judge, as the Watertown Daily Times's Dave Shampine brings to life the stories of these and many other captivating, colorful characters.
