Such is the life of a preservationista/photographer/educator (and more)
Johnny “Clyde” Copeland (March 27, 1937 – July 3, 1997) - Taken at Trammp’s NYC in the early 90s - I remember it well because I accidentally spilled hot coffee on the woman I was with and we had to leave - kinda quickly.
346) Winfield Scott, U.S. Army General, Gravesite - West Point, NY
Fought in War of 1812, leader in Mexican-American War and Civil War.
In 1838, General Scott led U.S. Army forces in the forced removal of the Cherokee people to land west of the Mississippi River. It was a brutal and tragic blight on U.S. History that became known as the Trail of Tears. Thousands of Cherokees died during the march, many from exhaustion in the mid-summer heat.
