It Happened at Trenton Falls...
August 18, 1863
United States Secretary of State William Seward with guests from Britain, Russia, Hanseatic League, Italy, Sweden, Nicaragua and France visit Trenton Falls for dinner, rest and political discussion.
150 Years later This Event was reenacted.
William Henry Seward Was Secretary of State under President Abraham Lincoln. In 1863 he organized a visit through New York State with foreign dignitaries to impress upon the foreigners the extent of the resources of the north. The group arrived at Trenton Falls on the morning train from Utica.
The stop at Trenton Falls was the only visit that was photo-graphed during this northern tour. It is believed that this meeting was instrumental in convincing the diplomats that a Union victory was inevitable. It is interesting to note that the countries represented at this summit did not support the south following this tour.
