Visited Olana, a historic artist’s home overlooking the Hudson River. My sister Meredith and I were in visual heaven touring the Moorish masterpiece of Frederic Church. In the 1870s, his landscapes were the most popular paintings of his time. Church and his mentor, Thomas Cole led the Hudson River School. See www.olana.org for more info!

Why Richmond is the Rivah City!

Richmond — The political and economic capital of the Confederacy, the city’s capitulation was a key component of Union strategy for four years.

Its fall in April 1865 rang the death knell for the Confederacy. By Charles Bryan
