Known as the birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution, Troy, New York, has ridden the roller coaster of the modern technological boom. For centuries, the city has been home to innovators, educators and visionaries, including William Henry Jackson, whose famous photographs captured the spirit of the American West, and Emma Willard, the pioneering author who founded the first institution of higher education for women. Discover Troy s surprising connections to the legendary Uncle Sam, the advent of espionage aircraft and the origins of American geology. In Remembering Troy, historian Don Rittner highlights the city s rich past and demonstrates that Troy, like its fabled Greek predecessor, can rise again to global prominence."
