GRACEDALE RESIDENTS CAST VOTES, REMINISCE THE ELDERLY STRESS THE IMPORTANCE OF SUFFRAGE AND ARE ASSISTED AT BOOTHS BY INDEPENDENT POLLING CLERK. [THIRD Edition] Morning Call - Allentown, Pa. Author: GAIL SCUDDER, (A free-lance story for The Morning Call) Date: Nov 8, 2000 Start Page: B.03 Section: COMMUNITY REPORT Text Word Count: 510 Document Text Copyright Morning Call Nov 8, 2000

Barbara Badway Frey, who says she's about 79, arrived at the voting booth on Election Day in a wheelchair, saucy black hat, knitted chartreuse scarf and bright red lipstick.

She didn't have to go far from home to vote. She lives at Gracedale, the Northampton County nursing home in Upper Nazareth Township, which on election days doubles as a polling place.

On Tuesday, when people nationwide were voting in the 2000 presidential election, Gracedale residents reminisced about a lifetime of voting for candidates going as far back as Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

At Gracedale on Tuesday, Frey voted in a booth on the nursing facility's main floor, then gave her take on why she continues to vote.

"It's important to put somebody in that's worthwhile," she remarked.

"I have been voting for a long, long, time, honey. For over 25 years," she said.

Ninety-eight-year-old Emma Sloyer recalled voting for FDR, Harry S. Truman and John F. Kennedy. She also remembered meeting Eleanor Roosevelt, while on a bus tour to the Roosevelt's Hyde Park home.

"She came and spoke to us. I stood about 8 feet from her," Sloyer said.

Not to be outdone, Anne Ronca, 74, another Gracedale resident, feels the same way.

"I'm voting today because it's important to get my candidate in," she said, of George W. Bush. Ronca first voted when she was 21, for FDR, and later for Dwight D. Eisenhower and then JFK.

"I'm interested in politics because it gives me the feeling that I am participating."

The Rev. John C. Fowler, 76, a retired Episcopal priest and a volunteer at Gracedale, shuttled residents
of the county home back and forth to the voting room on the main floor.

One of those residents was 88-year-old Norman Dech. Fowler wheeled Dech into the booth, turned the chair sideways, closed the curtain and pulled the levers for Dech, a retired Bethlehem Steel worker. Before entering the voting booth, Dech seemed to have trouble seeing while signing the voting book.
"Look at him, he can't see the paper," Fowler said. "I'm going to vote (for ) him."

Judge of Elections Linda Post said she was uncomfortable with Fowler helping voters and allowed him only to bring the patients to the entrance of the voting room.

She then asked voting clerk Maryann Deutsch, an Independent, to assist people in the voting booths.
Post said she wishes the younger generation would show as much interest in the country's politics as the older generation.

"I think living through the Depression and being more active in the military gave more of a self-respect for the country and who ran it," she said. She recalled one voter, John McNamara of Upper Nazareth, who suffered war injuries and walked with crutches.

"He crawled up the steps, dragging his legs every election," she said.

S. service for three years, at Camp Curtin, Harrisburg, Feb. 7, 1862. Col. Campbell and many of the other officers and men had already served in the three months, campaign. The regiment left for Washington on Feb. 27; encamped near Bladensburg cemetery, where it spent about four weeks in drill and other routine duties; reported on March 29 to Col. Miles at Harper's Ferry, and was assigned to guard duty along the line of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad, having under its charge some 56 miles of road west of Martinsburg. Its headquarters were first at Great Cacapon and afterwards at Sir John's run. From June I to Sept. 1O, Col.
Campbell reported the capture of 213 guerrillas and 273 horses. After the surrender of the forces under Col. Miles at Harper's Ferry, the 54th was attached to Gen. Franklin's command. On Oct. 4 all but 35 members of Co. K at Little Cacapon, and all of Co. B at Paw Paw were surprised and captured by a force under Gen. Imboden. A little later, on the organization of the 8th corps, it was assigned to the 3rd
brigade, 2nd division. In December Cos. B and K were exchanged and returned to the regiment and in this month the command was relieved of its long service on the railroad. On Jan. 6, 1863, the regiment moved to Romney where it remained until the opening of the spring campaign. Lieut.-CoL McDermit
resigned on Jan. 29 and was succeeded by Maj. Linton, Capt. Yutzy being promoted major.

It moved to Springfield with its brigade early in November and was assigned to Ist brigade, and division, Col. Campbell in
command. In Jan., 1864, Col. Campbell with a part-of his command was ordered to Cumberland, and in February, Co. K was surprised and captured at Patterson's creek by the enemy under the notorious Harry Gilmore. In the campaign in the Shenandoah Valley in May under Gen. Sigel, the 54th was active
at the battle of New Market, losing 174 killed, wounded and missing. Maj.- Gen. Hunter now assumed command of the army which was designated the Army of the Shenandoah. The 54th was
active at Piedmont, losing 30 killed and wounded, and as a part of the 3rd brigade, 2nd division was engaged at Lexington with little loss. Its loss at Lynchburg was severe, numbering 54 killed. In the subsequent retreat across the mountains into the Kanawha Valley, the command suffered severely. It
arrived at Camp Pyatt on June 29 and moved by rail to Martinsburg on July I4. It joined in the pursuit of Early's forces, engaging him at Snicker's ferry and Island ford of the Shenandoah with a loss of 7 men, skirmished at Kernstown on the 23d, and was heavily engaged there on the 24th; then withdrew across the Potomac, where it engaged in the various maneuvres of the army; after a number of heavy skirmishes fell back to Halltown, remaining there until Aug. 28; then moved to Charlestown and thence to Berryville, where it was active in September. While here its depleted ranks were filled by recruits, returning convalescents and veterans. It was active at the battle of Winchester, making a gallant charge with its corps under Gen. Crook, shared in the splendid charge at Fisher's hill; and suffered heavily in the celebrated battle of Cedar creek, where it was posted in advance. On the close of Sheridan's campaign in the Shenandoah, the 54th moved to Washington and thence to City Point, arriving on Dec. 23, and
being assigned to the Army of the James. In May, 1864, the veterans 54th and recruits of the 3d and 4th reserve regiments were first organized as an independent battalion, but were united with the 54th on Feb. 7, 1865. The consolidated organization, still known as the 54th Col. Albert P. Moulton,Lieut.-Col. William A. McDermit, Mail Nathan Davis, was assigned to and brigade, independent division, Army of the
James, commanded by Gen. Ord. In the attack on Fort Gregg at Petersburg, April 2, 1865, it lost 20 killed and wounded.

High Bridge, Va., April 6, 1865. 4th Massachusetts Cavalry, 54th Pennsylvania and 123rd Ohio Infantry. At 4 a.m. of this date this detachment, under command of Gen. Theodore Read, left Burkeville to destroy High bridge over the Appomattox river about 5 miles from Farmville. The cavalry advance met the enemy when within about 2 miles of the bridge and immedately engaged and drove him almost to Farmville. Here the Confederate artillery opened on the advance, compelling it to fall back to near Rice's Station, where the infantry was hotly engaged. Read ordered the cavalry to charge into the woods on the left, which it did with great success, but on its return it was surrounded and after a severe fight captured by a superior force of the enemy. Some 15 members of the cavalry were killed or wounded. The enemy's
loss was not reported.
