This is an award-winning study of artists, writers, and the Hudson River Valley from 1820 to 1909. It analyzes the meanings of the river to residents as well as tourists; artists who have portrayed the river and environs, including Thomas Cole and Jervis McEntee; writers such as Washington Irving, N.P. Willis and John Burroughs; and how residents responded to social and economic change by embracing the Revolutionary war history of the valley, which culminated in the first preservation of a historic structure by a governmental agency, Washington's Headquarters in Newburgh.
