Museum in NYC displays rare maps of original 13 colonies

NEW YORK

A New York City museum is opening an exhibit of rarely displayed maps that provide a blueprint of the transformation of the original 13 colonies into the United States of America.

The exhibit titled “Mapping America’s Road from Revolution to Independence” opened Nov. 3 at the New-York Historical Society in Manhattan and runs until March 11, 2018.

The documents include rare hand-drawn and engraved maps from the 18th and early 19th centuries. The graphic artistry unique to mapmaking during the American Colonial period is highlighted by the inclusion of Founding Father and New York Gov. John Jay’s copy of a 1755 British map showing English and French holdings in North America.

WV tourism gets ‘almost heaven’ rights

CHARLESTON, W.Va.

The West Virginia Tourism Office says it has obtained rights to use the song “Take Me Home, Country Roads” in marketing and has begun to use it.

Made famous by John Denver, it calls the mountain state “almost heaven” and has been an unofficial West Virginia anthem almost since its 1971 release and was named an official state song in 2014. Fans sing it at West Virginia University home football games.

The tourism office says it will make it a centerpiece of a major ad campaign next year.

According to National Public Radio, Denver first heard the incomplete song in the Washington, D.C., apartment of songwriter Bill Danoff and his girlfriend and writing partner, Taffy Nivert. They finished it and recorded it together months later in New York City.
