Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, is one of the most important historical locations in the state, if not the country. However, it is more than just a single event. While it may be best known as the site of abolitionist John Brown's attack on the Federal armory, it is the home of the first successful application of interchangeable manufacture, the arrival of the first successful American railroad, the largest surrender of Federal troops during the Civil War, and the education of former slaves in one of the earliest integrated schools in the United States.
The Harpers Ferry National Historical Park offers an "Artist In Residence" program, and I have been fortunate to be selected. I will be photographing events, scenes, activities and the people at the Park this spring.
I will be sharing some stories during my time at the Park here in this Blog. I will also be sharing a few photographs in a Special Gallery on my commercial photography website, www.WVFinePhotography.com . I hope you will enjoy both my photographs and my stories.
