If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.

It has been a while since I’ve posted anything, but I plan to get back to a more routine schedule now.  This shot is the first of four waterfalls in an area known as the “Blue Hole” near Stoney Creek, Tennessee.

Hubbardton Battlefield

Landscape 5 Comments »

The only battle fought on Vermont soil during the American Revolution took place on the Hubbardton Battlefield on July 7, 1777.  This battle was important because it slowed the progress of the British forces long enough for the main body of the American Army to escape during their retreats from the forts at Ticonderoga and Mount Independence on Lake Champlain.

The Green Mountain Boys of New England stayed behind at the crest of this field to fight and hold back the massive Redcoat Army long enough for the retreat to take place.  And while the British  technically won the battle, their losses were so heavy that they gave up chasing the Americans to tend to their casualties.  Approximately 10 weeks later,  after the battles of Saratoga, British General John Burgoyne surrendered his entire Army.
