Residents disappointed by coin selection by Kathleen Bartholomay Governor Pataki's decision last week to choose the Statue of Liberty design titled \Gateway to Freedom\ for the New York State commemorative quar­ ter over the top competitor titled \Vic­ tory at Saratoga\ was a local disappointment in Schuylerville and the town of Saratoga, where the surrender of British General Burgoyne to Ameri­ can Revolutionary General Gates took place on October 17, 1777, just one- half mile south of the village ol Schuylerville on Route 4, marked by a state historical sign. Most residents reacted to Governor Pataki's decision by saying that it is \just politics again\ and \down state\ votes were counted as being more im­ portant than \upstate\ votes. That may or may not be the case, but it's worth mentioning that the scene that would have been depicted is taken from a detail from one of four historical paintings presently hanging in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda, all painted by New York State artist John Trumbull, who in a letter to Thomas Jefferson in June of 1789, wrote, \The greatest motive I had or have for engaging in or for continu­ ing my pursuit of painting has been the wish of commemorating the great events of our country's Revolution. Our country's Revolution will not be commemorated by the new quarter, but persons interested in American history might consider learning more about the Schuylerviilc/Saratoga area and its his­ tory by stopping at the Schuyler's Canal Park Visitors Center located at Fort Hardy Park A New York State homepage press release also states that the U.S. Mint has agreed \to add a line tracing the Hudson River and the route of the Erie Canal to the design to reflect the impor­ tance of both waterways to the develop­ ment of the state and nation.\ The original design, as pictured is simply an outline of the state. The Surrender of Burgoyne By Kathleen Bartholomay People who have attended or visited Schuylerville Central School might recognize this painting as a copy of it hangs in the elementary cafeteria. The original of the painting, entitled \Surrender of General Burgoyne,\ hangs in the Rotunda of the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C., along with three other American Revolutionary War paintings by John Trumbull. Certainly, General Burgoyne is in the red coat, to the left of center, relin­ quishing his sword, but it took some detective work to figure out the identities of the individuals in the center and to the right of center. Thanks to town resident Dan Hewitt and his personal library, they are identified. The man in the center is General Gates, and the main figure dressed in white with fringed leather is the Kentucky frontiersman Colonel Daniel Morgan. The figure in the background between Gates and Morgan is Philip Schuyler. The other British soldier, stand­ ing behind Burgoyne, is Major General William Phillips. The Trumbull painting was the inspiration for the \Victory at Saratoga\ New York State commemorative quarter design which placed second on Governor Pataki's list of designs to be submitted to the U.S. Mint for the striking of the coin that will be released early next year. The governor chose another design, \Gate­ way to Freedom,\ over the one which featured Gates, Burgoyne, Morgan, Schuyler, and Phillips. Congressman |ohn F. Sweeney Reports from Washington Roads in park Congressman John E. Sweeney (R/C-Halfmoon) announced a contract has been awarded for rehabilitation of roads and parking areas in the Saratoga Springs National Historic Park. The contract, awarded by the Federal High­ way Administration (FHWA) is worth $3,967,157. Kubricky Construction Corporation of Glens Falls will perform the work on the Battlefield Tour road \The Saratoga Battlefield is one of the greatest historic symbols of free­ dom and democracy in our nation,” said Sweeney. \I cannot overstate how im­ portant its preservation and restoration is to upstate and the tourism economy. This is the first major rehabilitation of the roads in 40 years. Hundreds of thousands of visitors use these roads each year. We must ensure that future generations will have the opportunity to fully experience American History at Saratoga, as my children did, and as 1 did as a child.\ to be rebuilt According to the National Park Service, a survey in the early 1990s re­ vealed deteriorated drainage structures, rusted and eroded culverts, silted drain­ age structures and road shoulder slump­ ing due to clay soils. The project will correct these conditions and resurface the roadway allowing for width adjust­ ments that will more safely serve multi­ ple users of the shared roadway: motorists, bicyclists and walkers. The Battlefield road system includes pieces of the original farm road net­ work, loops through the American and British positions and includes scenic overlooks. Designed to fee! like part of the natural landscape, it provides the momentous experience of standing on the spot where American history was made. Construction is slated to begin in the next month. Because of possible incon­ venience caused by the rehabilitation, the customaiy entrance fee will be waived by the park this season. Tips on protecting home while on vacation July and August are not only peak times for vacations, they are the two months of the year with the highest number of break-ins. To prevent your home from being burglarized While you are away on va­ cation, the New York Insurance Asso­ ciation offers these tips: Try to make your home look lived in. Leave the blinds open in their usual po­ sition. Install automatic timers to turn lights and radios on and off at appropri­ ate times. Ask a reliable neighbor or friend to pick up mail or forward it to the post office. ;Stop newspaper deliv- eiy and arrange to have someone mow your lawn and water the flowers. Trans­ fer valuables to a safe deposit box. Lower the sound of your telephone and answering machine, so it can't be heard outside the home. Make sure your voice mail message doesn't imply that you are away on vacation. Ask the police or a friend to check on the house from time to time. Let them know where you can be reached if there is an emergency. Get involved with a neighborhood watch group. W.orking closely with your neighbors to spot trouble is one of the most effective ways to prevent crime. For additional information on crime prevention, call your local law enforce­ ment agency or speak to your insurance agent.

He reported on the grand opening of the Schuyler's Canal Park Visitors Cen­ ter that was held June 25. The event in­ cluded a dedication of the center plus the gazebo, the boardwalk, and the footbridge across Fish Creek along then Old Champlain towpath. He credited organizations and some individuals that participated. They in­ clude the Saratoga National Historical Park, the Saratoga National Cemetery Honor Guard, the American Legion in Schuylerville, Friends of the Saratoga Battlefield, the General Schuyler Emer­ gency Squad, the Fort Hardy Youth Center, a Girl Scout Troop, Boy Scout Troop #13, town of Saratoga Supervi­ sor Robert Hall, Anson S. Piper of the Second Continental Artillery and Ste­ ven and Beth Collyer of His Majesty’s Loyal Scots. Turnout was estimated at two to three hundred people and the Visitors Center continues to draw people interested in the area. The visitor count began July 1, after the opening ceremonies and 228 people stopped at the center in the first 11 days, which would project to ap­ proximately 3,000 people stopping and visiting during the 150-day season, exclusive of special events. Group visits are also a factor that may spur further opportunities. Heri­ tage Hunters, the Saratoga County ge­ nealogical society, is arriving in August with 50-60 visitors plus bus tour opera­ tors. They have contacted Mr. Holmes requesting food and lodging and senior groups have made arrangements. He also reports that he is developing a working relationship with the newly formed Friends of Stark's Knob that in­ cludes the New York State museum and the Champlain Canal Byway, which has recently been established and approved for merger with the Lake Champlain Byway. Volunteers participating in keeping the center open daily include Mayor Kim Gamache, Walter Grom, Louise Landry, Jason Pratt, John Sherman and Cathy Stark-Mersereau. Gifts and objects on loan are from residents of Schuylerville and from friends outside o f the village. Schuyler's Canal Park Visitors Center is located in Fort Hardy Park at the end of the lane with flags representing all nations that have had domain over the land. Anyone who would like to volunteer to help or have items of interest to dis­ play should contact Tim Holmes or the village office.
