For lack of time or energy to do substantial research, this project
relies heavily on information presented in the U.S. Military Academy Department
of History's "West
Point Fortifications Staff Ride Notecards," second edition (1998).
Much of the text is reproduced directly from the notecards.
As the author's primary purpose in this project is to show some of the
potential of multimedia Internet presentation for historical education
rather than to undertake a major research project, the author relies fairly
uncritically on this single source and hopes that no one will get cranky
about his tiptoeing in the grey areas of the authors' restrictions on reproducing/publishing.
Black-and-white and grey-scale images are reproduced (some cropped,,
some enhanced, etc.) from the hardcopy of the U.S.M.A. Department of History's
"West Point Fortifications Staff Ride Notecards," first edition (1994).
The large map of
the region (and smaller reproductions on the individual pages) was
developed from Edward J. Krasnoborski's "Fortress West Point," 1988.
Color photos of views from various points around West Point are the
author's own work, such as it is.
