Ulysses Simpson Grant, Brady image, detail
07/27/1865
General Grant and his party, continuing his tour around the eastern United States, arrived in the early evening at the popular New York resort of Saratoga Springs to the usual enthusiastic welcome and acclaim. The temperatures during the day had reached into the nineties, and the resort was in full swing with all manners of boat races, shooting competitions, and summer banquets.  Grant's next stop was Boston and he would leave Saratoga after a short two day visit.  (By John Osborne)
