Hagerstown, Maryland, St. John's Episcopal Church, Carved Oak Reredos and Choir Section
From www.stjohnshagerstown.org: The most striking interior appointment of Saint John's is the magnificent carved oak reredos with a central bronze panel. This, along with a communion table, a bishop's chair, credence table, and Resurrection window in the sanctuary were gifts of Mrs. Henry Rosenberg, the former Mollie MacGill, in 1898, as memorials to members of her family. The reredos and communion table produced by Swiss wood carvers in the Black Forest of Germany had been brought to this country for display at the 1893 Columbian Exposition. Saint John's also has a magnificent organ Built by the M. P. Moller Company (1927) with 68 Stops; 60 Ranks and 3,377 Pipes.

The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.
The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.
The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.
The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seatle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer.
