isebrand Harper #Cemetery, Harpers Ferry, Harpers Ferry National Historical Park; Potomac #Railroad #Bridge. Yes, it was originally "Harper's Ferry," but the town's name lost its apostrophe. Mr. Robert Harper and his Wagner descendants operated a ferry service there in 1761–1820s. #railroadbridge #historicpark (Twitter: @NatlParkService) 2w

isebrand Representative models of rifles produced at the U.S. Armory and Arsenal in Harpers Ferry. Between 1801 and 1861, 600,000 muskets were manufactured here. It was destroyed in 1861 to prevent it from being captured. #HarpersFerry #civilwar #WestVirginia #muskets 2w

Mayfair S.J.I.
isebrand Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, Jefferson County, pop. 286 (2010), the town where militant abolitionist John Brown and a small group of men attempted to capture the U.S. Armory on October 16, 1859, in an effort to seize weapons with which to arm slaves and foment a slave uprising in the South. (At the time, Harpers Ferry was part of Virginia.) The commander who came to the scene against Brown was one Lt. Col. Robert E. Lee. Brown was captured, tried, and hanged, but his failed raid was a harbinger of the civil war. #WestVirginia #HarpersFerry #JeffersonCounty #JohnBrown #abolition #UShistory #civilwar #BlueRidge #AppalachianTrail #Potomac #Shenandoah 2w

isebrand Bravo to The Collegiate Singers, Plymouth Choir (Brooklyn), and orchestra at the First Baptist Church tonight. Great work with Haydn's #Heiligmesse, the Ave Verum Corpus of #Mozart, and the Cantique de Jean Racine by #Fauré. Great to have such good music five minutes from my front door. #classicalmusic #UWS #Haydn #missa #NYC #sacredmusic 3w

isebrand Today, the United Kingdom is voting for its Members of Parliament (MPs), those who will sit in the House of Commons—the elected house of the two houses of Parliament—as representatives of their constituents. This is a photo I took of the beautiful work, "The Houses of Parliament, Seagulls," by Claude Monet, on permanent display at the #Princeton University Art #Museum. #Monet painted the Palace of Westminster, home of the Houses of Parliament of #Britain, at least 19 times, each showing the subject from his viewpoint at St Thomas' Hospital, London, across the Thames from the #palace and where most, perhaps all, of the compositions were begun, though he continued working on the series back at his studio in #Giverny using photographs that he requested from contacts in London. There are 19 known paintings in the series, each 81 cm x 92 cm (give or take less than 0.5 cm in some cases), and 14 (or 15 depending on which recent secondary source one reads) are on public view in museums. On Monday, the 11th of May, 2015, one of those in a private collection will be auctioned by @ChristiesInc in New York City; "Le Parlement, soleil couchant" is expected to fetch $35-$45 million. #PUArtMuseum #PalaceofWestminster #parliament #GE2015 #Impressionism #sunset #seagulls #Thames #London #oiloncanvas #HouseofCommons #GuysandStThomas #Christies #nofilter @BBCelection @ArtNewsMag @yalebritishart 3w

isebrand I'll be home from Christmas? From late December. #nofilter #manhattan #skyline #LGA #wintersky #shadesofgrey #eastriver #LongIsland Wish I knew the island in the foreground as well as the identity of other features. Can you help? Perhaps Hart Island with the Throgs Neck Bridge in the background? 4mon
  •   clarkyfy Isn't Hart Island fascinating? 4mon
  •   isebrand @clarkyfy I've never been. I'm not sure that's Hart Island. Is it? Now I'd better go Google it. ;D 4mon
  •   clarkyfy I can't tell from that angle. I need to see City Island when I'm flying over and then I know where it is. I haven't been either - need to be a Rikers inmate or dead I guess. 4mon
  •   isebrand @clarkyfy ️Have to be a criminal or a corpse. — Never been to City Island. 4mon
  •   clarkyfy Great seafood there! It's a nice bike ride too. I'll let you know next time I go!🚴 4mon
