On this day

On this day in 1776, in a letter to Congress, Washington recommends raising companies of Germans to send among the Hessians fighting for Britain when they arrive “for exciting a spirit of disaffection and desertion’; in 1957, Saratoga Grange members plowed & sowed 30 acres for Fred VanDeusen; and in 2008, the first Lilac Festival was sponsored by the Schuylerville Area Chamber of Commerce. 
On this day is a chronological timetable of events that occurred on this day in history around the Town of Saratoga. Discover what happened today in local history by following us on Facebook at http://ift.tt/2kLifwt
