James M. Johnson, PhD will speak in the OBTC Great Room 101 in Kaplan Hall on one of the strategic points along the Hudson River in his lecture, Fortress West Point and the Hudson River Valley: General George Washington’s “Key of America.” The Hudson River Valley is a region of phenomenal natural beauty. It is a painters and photographer’s paradise with each season bringing a different set of colors and indigenous flora and fauna to appreciate and record. From small town to the metropolis of New York City, it abounds in cultural opportunities. Historically, it has been recognized as a strategic region. That was certainly true during the time of the American Revolution.
