The Bolton Free Library is sponsoring a guided walking tour of the battlefield at the Saratoga National Park and a cruise on the tour boat down the Hudson River, reviewing the battlefield from the river. The tour, on Saturday June 5, will be conducted on the tour boat "Caldwell Belle" through Lock No. 5 on the Champlain Canal.
The trip will be narrated 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 library at 9 a.m. and returning at about 4 p.m. Moderate walking is a required aspect of the excursion.
The tour donation of $45 will go to support the mission of the Bolton Free Library. Reservations and information are available at the library or by calling 668-9693.
