Chautauqua County Historian Michelle Henry presents a program detailing local and national research on Patrick Tyrrell, a Dunkirk resident later hailed as a national hero for thwarting a plot to steal Abraham Lincoln’s body in 1876. However, records held in the County Archive in Mayville suggest that Tyrrell’s personal and professional life were marred by accusations of corruption and abuse. Was he a hero or a scoundrel, or perhaps a bit of both?
