 From Cambridge, we went on up to the Washington County, NY, historians office at Fort Edward. ... and dropped off another Jeanette Behan book.

Our visit here was nothing less than amazing, as only the day before we arrived, they found a large file of our grandfather's sister's genealogical papers.  We didn't know they were there, nor even that she was "into" genealogy.  We copied it all and brought it home. 

Amazing!!   And the historian was there only one day a week, and that was the day we were there!!!

The historian said we should visit the locks nearby, which proved most interesting.  These locks allowed barges to get around the local falls of the Hudson River near this location.  They aren't used now. P5310015.JPG (208588 bytes)

Over the border east of Hudson Falls and Cambridge is Bennington Memorial in Bennington, VT, which commemorates Revolutionary battles around the area. It looks like Washington Monument.

In the museum part, they showed an alternate design that was considered for construction that looked much like the space shuttle rockets on launch pad.
