Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Title: "Place of the Still Waters" Author: Leigh Hornbeck Publisher: Times Union Date: 2/25/2009 Linda Sanders in Stillwater is the latest local historian to add her expertise to the "Images of America" series. Arcadia Publishing will release Sanders' book, "Stillwater," next week. For Linda, it is the fulfillment of the "prophecy" written in her high school yearbook, senior year, which forecast Sanders would someday write about history for a magazine. Now, 50 years after she graduated from Stillwater Central School, her dream has come true in the form of a book. Sanders dedicated the book to "everyone who has ever lived, lives, or will live in this wonderful town." She wrote a brief history of the town and selected historical photographs to fill more than 115 pages. The pictures capture the serious moments in Stillwater history - the shell of the Newland Saratoga Knitting Mill in 1904 after it was gutted by fire - and the lighthearted as well. There are three photographs in the book of Pete the goose, who had his run of Stillwater village and befriended a neighborhood dog. Sanders wrote each caption in the folksy manner in which she speaks, with clear affection for her hometown. Sanders said her favorite picture is of the Rev. Lemuel Powers' skeleton. She laughed as she talked about it and said it might seem morbid to choose a picture of a man's remains as her favorite, but she liked it because it's different than the typical historical portrait. Powers was buried in the Manger Cemetery but exhumed in 1937 and reburied near the church he founded, the First Baptist Church (gone now) on Route 423. "I love the last photo in the book too, of all of us who worked to move the Blockhouse," Sanders said, referring to the day in 1999 when the Stillwater Blockhouse Committee hired a crew to move the blockhouse, a replica of a fortress used during the French and Indian War, from the Saratoga National Historical Park to a village park on routes 4 and 32. Sanders will appear at two book signing events; 1:30 p.m. March 29 at the Saratoga National Historical Park (the battlefield) and 6 p.m. March 31 at the Stillwater Public Library. "Stillwater," from Arcadia Publishing, will be available beginning March 2 at local bookstores and online for $21.99. Go to http://www.arcadiapublishing.com to order or call 888-313-2665.

Riassunto: Strategically located at the joining of the Hudson and Hoosac Rivers, Stillwater was the site of the Battles of Saratoga in 1777, which took place in the northern part of the town and led to the defeat of the British during the Revolutionary War. Stillwater became an official town on March 7, 1788, and the village was later incorporated in 1816. During the 19th century, the opening of the canals along the Hudson River spurred industry in the community. The town was also an educational center, with Stillwater Academy that flourished for many years. By the 20th century, Stillwater residents became more mobile, finding work outside town, and the mills and factories began to close. Today Stillwater is known as a bedroom community with a bright future.

L'autore: Linda Sanders is a lifelong resident of Stillwater and currently serves as the village historian and the town deputy historian. She is a trustee of the New York State Association of Public Historians and secretary of the Stillwater Historical Society.
