Overview
From the establishment of the Iroquois Confederacy to the American Revolution, followed by the Erie Canal and the rise of the Industrial Revolution, Cohoes has played a significant role in the American story. With these great epochs in history have come numerous legendary individuals who have left distinctive marks, from Hiawatha, leader of the Iroquois, to Gen. Horatio Gates, who defeated the British at Saratoga, to leaders of industry like David Wilkinson and Robert Johnston. Cohoes has also been witness to great educators including Chester Arthur, who went on to become president, and notorious political figures like Big Mike Smith. Grace Reavey was the first women appointed to municipal office in New York State, and Virginia McDonald was the first woman elected mayor in the state. The many small businesses that continue to be the lifeblood of the community cannot be forgotten, including the nationally renowned Mohawk Paper and Uncle John s, the quintessential small town diner. These are just a few of the many threads that make up the fabric of the history showcased in Legendary Locals of Cohoes."
