On this day

On this day in 1879, work began on Victory Company’s new dye house; in 1902, Schuylerville forbid trains to run faster than 6 mph; and in 2002, the Saratoga Monument reopened, after being closed for 15 years with nearly 3 million dollars secured through the efforts of the late Congressman Gerald Solomon and former Assemblyman Bobby D’Andrea.
