The Bolton Free Library is sponsoring a multi-faceted tour of the Saratoga Battlefield June 5 - to be headed up by a noted area historian.
The trip features a guided walking tour of the battlefield at the Saratoga National Park and a cruise on the tour boat the "Caldwell Belle" through Lock 5 on the Champlain Canal down the Hudson River, reviewing the battlefield from the river. The tour will be led by 18th-century historian Karl Crannel accompanied by Bolton Town Historian Ted Caldwell. Box lunches will be provided at the lock prior to the boat tour. The 25-passenger bus provided by the Sagamore will be leaving the Bolton Library at 9 a.m. and returning at about 4 p.m. Moderate walking is to be expected.
The tour donation of $45 will go to support the mission of the Bolton Free Library. Reservations and details are available by calling the library at 668-9693.
