,Returning from the Army camps in America and Overseas following World War I, American Veterans, desiring to perpetuate their comradship, organized Posts of the American Legion in their home communities.  In most cases these Posts were named in honor ot the the first boy from the community to fall in battle.  The village of Frewsburg, New York was no exception to this rule. The Post is known as Samulel Derby Post No. 556 and named in honor of Samulel Derby, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Silas Derby, for many years residents of the Town of Carroll.
