Monumental New York! highlights thirty of the most fascinating statues and memorials found throughout Upstate New York. D’Imperio leads readers through the state’s rich history as he explores some of the famous and lesser-known monuments of the region. You will meet the canal diggers who muscled their way across the state trenching "Clinton’s Ditch" and learn about the "Female Paul Revere." Featuring memorial tributes to such well-known historical figures as John Brown, FDR, and Carl Sagan, the book also includes the site of Upstate New York’s infamous Civil War prison camp and the chilling "Jerry Rescue Monument." These monuments are scattered from cities such as Albany and Buffalo to the many little-known towns that populate the state. Each chapter offers detailed information on the history and significance of each monument as well as useful travel information about the area. D’Imperio’s engaging narrative, detailed research, and infectious enthusiasm for Upstate New York make this an ideal guidebook, one that visitors and residents alike will treasure for years to come.
