On this day

On this day in 1770, Marie Antoinette marries future King Louis XVI of France (the King supported American Independences by secretly supplying the Americans before the victory at Saratoga and then publically with troops and a navy after Saratoga); in 1930, Schuylerville’s Joseph Canzeri, was born and he went on to serve Governor Rockerfeller, President Reagan and President George Bush along with organizing Dr. Martin Luther King and Attorney General Robert Kennedy’s funerals; in 1971, the cost of first-class postage went from 6 to 8 cents; and in 2002, the Schuylerville Village-wide Spring Clean Up allowed for one trash and debris pick up for each household.
