"Since 1887: Saratoga's Police Department By 1887, Saratoga Springs had grown to a point where a police department was needed to ensure law and order. An act of the State Legislature created the Saratoga Springs police department on April 26th of that year, and on June 1st, eight men marked their first official work day in the new department. Come hear Saratoga Springs' Police Chief Greg Veitch talk about this unique part of our city's history. The Brown Bag Lunch Lecture Series is a monthly, hour-long program presented in partnership by the Saratoga Springs Heritage Area Visitor Center and the Saratoga Springs Public Library. This event is conducted in the Dutcher Community Room located on the main floor of the library. This program is free and open to the public and begins promptly at noon. Tea and coffee are provided. For more information please contact the Visitor Center at 518-587-3241.

Where: Grant Cottage State Historic Site
Cost: $10.00
Mark Twain and Ulysses S. Grant were friends. But when Tited the General at Grant Cottage, he came as an editor assisting an author. Twain was going to publish Grant's Memoirs and he wanted the book to be perfect. His visit in June, 1885, therefore, was a business trip. When Twain left, he did not realize that he would never see his friend alive again. " Sunset On Mount McGregor" brings Grant and Twain together one last time and gives them the opportunity to put into words thoughts and feelings they did not express in June, 1885. The greatest military man and the greatest writer of their age will look back on their eventful lives and distill the lessons learned from surviving their country's darkest, most tragic and, paradoxically, most inspirational era.
