Hi, I'm Judy Friedberg and I am happy to tell you about my home state of Virginia.
Officially known as the Commonwealth of Virginia, this mid-Atlantic state is
bordered by Washington, DC, Maryland, West Virginia and North Carolina. And,
to the East, the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean border Virginia's Eastern
Shore, another peninsula of Virginia land.
More than eight million people live in Virginia. Our state flower is actually a
flowering tree -- the dogwood. Our state bird is the cardinal.
Much of our state's natural beauty is protected by National Parks. My favorite is
Great Falls Park which highlights a rushing section of the Potomac River, which
flows to the Bay from the mountains in the west. Those mountains are also known
as The Blue Ridge Mountains, due to the coloring of the trees and shadows,
particularly in the early morning and early evening light.
Much of this area is included in Shenandoah National Park. Within the park is a
portion of the beautiful Appalachian Trail -- a rigorous hiking trail which extends
from Georgia to Maine. In the autumn, the leaves are at their most colorful.
Skyline Drive runs through the park. This is a fantastic way to see the beauty of the
mountains and the Shenandoah Valley from the comfort of your car.
The Shenandoah Valley is known for dairy farms and wineries. Virginia's farming
history also includes tobacco and cotton.
Virginia's nicknames refer to its rich history. The Old Dominion refers to its status
as one of the original 13 colonies. Virginia's other nickname is The Mother of
Presidents. Eight U.S. presidents were born here - more than any other state.
Some of their homes are open to the public as historic sites.
Mount Vernon, home of our first President, George Washington, sits high on a bluff
overlooking the Potomac River, not far from Washington, DC.
Monticello, home of our third President and drafter of our Declaration of
Independence, Thomas Jefferson, is located in Charlottesville, Virginia. The
University of Virginia, which Jefferson founded, is nearby.
But, back to some much earlier history...Native people, including the Powhatan,
Algonquin, and Iroquois, were already living in the area long before the English
settlers came. Some say the name Virginia was the settlers' way of honoring Queen
Elizabeth the First of England, who was also known as The Virgin Queen.
You may have heard of the story of Pocahontas? She was a native of the area and a
friend to the English settlers of the colony's first capitol, Jamestown, in 1616.
Williamsburg served as the capitol of the Colony of Virginia from the early 1700s
and was the center of political activity leading to the American Revolution.
Both Jamestown and Williamsburg have active historic centers where you can learn
more about colonial life.
Richmond became the state capital in 1780 and remains so today. In 1861, after ten
states seceded from the United States, Richmond became the capital of the shortlived
Confederate States of America.
After the Civil War ended, and these states re-entered the Union, Richmond
developed into a railroad crossroads for the region. These strong railroads helped
develop trade routes between the middle of the country and the Atlantic Ocean and
led to the founding of Newport News Shipbuilding which continues to produce
battleships and aircraft carriers. Nearby Hampton Roads is the largest naval base on
the east coast.
Virginia is also home to the world's largest office building, The Pentagon,
headquarters of the Defense Department.
Other Virginia coastal attractions are historic lighthouses including Cape Henry,
Fort Monroe and Assateague. Assateague is also the home of the Chincoteague wild
ponies. And, if you visit there perhaps you will order some delicious Chesapeake
Bay blue crab and a beer for your dinner.
Today, media, technology, software, communications, and consulting are the fastest growing sectors of Virginia's economy. The education sector, particularly Virginia's
200-plus colleges and universities, and the government employment sector are also
growth areas. All of this and more, make Virginia the wealthiest of the southern
I hope you enjoyed hearing about Virginia today.

June 4, 2019 - West Front of the US Capitol Building - 30 th Anniversary Remembrance
On June 4, 1989 - an event took place in Beijing, China in Tiananmen Square. This event that took place on the west front of the US Capitol, on June 6th, remembered what happened 30 years ago in China. 30 years ago, the pro - democracy movement led by students in 1989, was met with brutal force by the Chinese military.
That event is remembered each year around the world as a modern example where freedom - the simple act of freedom of speech - that we take for granted in the United States, was denied the students in China, with a terrible outcome.

Video shows tractor-trailer overturn in alleged road rage crash
Police released video showing an alleged road rage crash involving a tractor-trailer. An apparent act of road rage ended when a tractor-trailer driver crashed into a highway median, flipped and overturned across Route 17 in a wreck captured on dashboard camera footage.
This video clip is about the Jackson River Trail in Covington, VA.. It is part of a series produced by Bicycling Through History.
The series was originally produced on DVD and it is now gradually migrating to online distribution via YouTube. The DVDs were very popular with libraries. Many librarians decided to procure either individual DVDs or the whole series for their collections because they serve several purposes. They provide a multi-media presentation of categories in History, Travel, Geography, Music, Sports, Fitness and Adventure. The series was developed to encourage additional reading or research in all these topics.
Online versions fall into two separate groups. There were Quicktime videos uploaded before YouTube became popular. Those primarily feature nautical themes and winter sports. The clips uploaded more recently to YouTube are modified versions of some DVD segments and some newer clips in High Definition (HD).
ALL the music is licensed. It is Buy-Out music licensed through Flying Hands. Most productions take place in Public Areas, such as trails, thorofares or parks where permission to take video has either been sought or is not required.
Bicycling Through History presents programs showing popular cycling trails that provide a unique perspective. Many people ride recreational trails and probably do not know the history associated with them. The purpose of the series is to acquaint viewers with the landmarks that can be see while cycling, hiking, inline skating or horseback riding. In many cases, these trails follow the same routes taken by important people in history or else the routes demonstrate some other significant event(s).
The series combines Reenactors with Period Music and other Accoutrements to impart facets of history that might otherwise be totally missed in reading books or conducting research in specific areas. The pace of cycling is similar to the modes of travel back in earlier times. Driving in an automobile will simply not provide the same experience as cycling, hiking or horseback riding. Once viewers know what to look for, they can enjoy their travels along these same routes even more.
Online clips will have links in chronological order from top to bottom. More clips will be added as they become available. Please return to the site for additional information and updates -
