The Hudson River Valley Review Fall Issue is Now Available
The fall 2018 edition explores the concepts of community and identity by delving into the American Revolution
November 6, 2018—The newest issue of The Hudson River Valley Review highlights the interplay between “our place” and people from colonial times to the present. Published by the Hudson River Valley Institute at Marist College, The Review is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal dedicated to the history of the region.
The articles in this issue explore questions such as: Who developed the British strategy during the American Revolution, and how was that strategy implemented by field officers and affected by the “field” itself? Or how has a legendary commander profoundly impacted the U.S. Military Academy despite never setting foot on its grounds?
“We hope this issue will inspire readers to think about how we continue to inform and to be informed by the places we call home,” said Chris Pryslopski, Program Director of the Hudson River Valley Institute. “The articles in this issue underscore what a significant influence this region has had—both on its own residents and the world.”
Returning to the American Revolution and its legacy in the Hudson River Valley, The Review also examines the commemoration of the route that the French and American armies marched from Rhode Island to Yorktown. Author Matthew DeLaMater appraises famed artist Thomas Cole; a scholarly debate rages as to how British or American Cole may have been. DeLaMater maintains that the artist’s small-town life in Catskill is the key to understanding his identity. The issue also includes a history of the Rhinebeck Fire Department, book reviews, and more.
The issue is available for preview at http://www.hudsonrivervalley.org/review/, and for purchase at select booksellers and museum gift-shops throughout the region for $15.00 each. Subscriptions are available at: http://www.hudsonrivervalley.org/review/subscribe.html, or by calling 845-575-3052.
