Richmond’s Forgotten War 

mailbox.jpg

I grew up in western New York where the War of 1812 was a big historical deal. It was therefore very interesting to read about Richmond's role in the war and to find out that those streets in Manchester were not named after planters or industrialists but those same dashing naval heroes I read about growing up! Thanks to Edwin Slipek for bringing out another story from Richmond's hidden past.
