In giving the Queensbury Bicentennial Committee's documents to the Queensbury Town Historian, Queensbury Bicentennial Committee Chair Joan Robertson also included the information on that
Trek, including the man who led it. The trek came through Queensbury and Glens Falls, encamped in Crandall Park and was one of the highlights of the Bicentennial events. At the time I was
director of the Chapman Historical Museum in Glens Falls and recall the great work that was done. I'm delighted that the Trek wil be remembered. There also coins minted for the occasion.
