Ever wonder how many of these men have a Presidential Library in their name?

Answer:  There are 14 Presidential Libraries that can be viewed online via The National Archives.

For those in our region of Upstate New York (The State Capital of Albany), it is only a one hour drive to the FDR Library in Hyde Park, where we (Saratoga Flag) have had the honor to work on the Pearl Harbor Exhibit in 2016.

Locally, Saratoga County, is the home to Grant Cottage, the location of President Grant’s death on July 23, 1885, and where he completed his memoirs.  Enjoy taking some time this week to Explore the Nation’s past.
