Great picture !
If you haven't seen, well worth the rental.
In 1861 there was no West Virginia. It was still all one state; Virginia.
You're more than welcome, America!
I'd love to see this monument if and when I ever visit the land of my father's lineage again...
This is moving and beautiful, the pride the Irish take in the Ireland-America connection and the Irish and Irish heritage contribution to this great nation. Much to be proud of...
9/11: Never Forget.
Let me know when you come visit again!!
Of course, we had some anti-war protesters demosrating against Bloomberg!
