Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, United States
"The passage of the Patowmac through the Blue Ridge is perhaps one of the most stupendous scenes in Nature. You stand on a very high point of land. On your right comes up the Shenandoah, having ranged along the foot of the mountain a hundred miles to seek a vent. On your left approaches the Patowmac in quest of a passage also. In the moment of their junction they rush together against the mountain, rend it asunder and pass off to the sea" (Thomas Jefferson). Thomas Jefferson thought that Harpers Ferry was one of the most stupendous scenes in nature, yet it is also known for being rich in history. In 1859 John Brown had a raid on the arsenal in Harpers Ferry, today you can see where these famous people from the past have traveled and helped make America great!
