Eastern Continental Divide

The Eastern Continental Divide or Eastern Divide or Appalachian Divide is a hydrographic divide in eastern North America that separates the easterly Atlantic Seaboard watershed from the westerly Gulf of Mexico watershed. The divide nearly spans the United States from south of Lake Ontario through the Florida peninsula, consists of raised terrain including the Appalachian Mountains to the north, the southern Piedmont Plateau and lowland ridges in the Atlantic Coastal Plain to the south. Water including rainfall and snowfall, lakes and rivers on the eastern/southern side of the divide drains to the Atlantic Ocean; the ECD is one of six continental hydrographic divides of North America which define several drainage basins, each of which drains to a particular body of water. The divide originates at the Eastern Triple Divide near the middle of the northern border of Pennsylvania runs south-by-southwest following the crest of the Appalachian Mountains through Pennsylvania, western Maryland, West Virginia and North Carolina to its high point on Grandfather Mountain descends to the city of Atlanta in northwestern Georgia, where it doglegs southeasterly across the Georgia plateau and through the lowlands of Northern Florida to its terminus in central Florida at the northern boundary of the Lake Okeechobee Basin.

Though the divide is associated with high elevation, at its southern terminus at the northern Kissimmee River watershed in Florida, the elevation is only 70ft. Above sea level. Nor does the divide always coincide with the highest point or ridgeline, because streams can flow through passes or gaps in the ridge, so that terrain on one side of the ridge drains to the other side and therefore to the other watershed; this occurs in several places. The ECD is not fixed, but can shift due to erosion, tectonic shift and anthropogenic activity such as tunnel excavation, damming of rivers and road construction. In colonial times, except for Spanish Florida, the ECD served as the boundary between English colonies on the Atlantic seaboard and Indian lands to the interior; the Eastern Continental Divide originates in the north at the Eastern Triple Divide on the summit named'Triple Divide Peak' 10.4 mi south of the New York-Pennsylvania line about 5 mi. southwest of the borough of Ulysses in Potter County, Pennsylvania.

That summit is the northernmost peak of three atop a broad plateau, farmland. From there, the ECD runs south-southwest through the two nearby southern summits southwesterly along the Allegheny Plateau west of the Allegheny Front until it plunges south along the Appalachians barrier ridge. Mount Mitchell State Park in North Carolina is the highest point on the ECD at 6,366 ft; as the altitude of the peaks diminishes across the swampy Georgia plateau, the divide meanders into the low country of Northern Florida until it reaches central Florida, ending at the north bank watershed of the Kissimmee River. While notionally, the ECD may be considered to extend to the southern tip of Florida, south of Lake Okeechobee the everglades, which spans the length and breadth of the peninsula, is a seasonal swamp which drains into the lake. During the wet season, overflow from the lake forms an unchanneled "river" 100 miles long and 60 miles wide that flows south to Florida Bay which ostensibly drains into the Gulf of Mexico, but due to mud dykes, little exchange of water occurs.

So hydrographically, the only divide in southern Florida is between the lake and the ocean or Gulf, that divide is coincident with the boundary between land and sea. Because the divide represents the highest terrain, air is forced upwards regardless of wind direction; this process of orographic enhancement leads to higher precipitation than surrounding areas. In winter, the divide is much snowier than surrounding areas, due to orographic enhancement and cooler temperatures with elevation. Prior to about 1760, north of Spanish Florida, the Appalachian Divide represented the boundary between British and French colonial possessions in North America; the Royal Proclamation of 1763 separated settled lands of the Thirteen Colonies from lands north and west of it designated the Indian Reserve.

Archery GB

Archery GB is the national governing body for the sport of archery in the United Kingdom. Archery GB is responsible for all levels of archery within the UK from elite to development level and supports over 40,000 members. Archery GB is the umbrella organisation for English Archery Association, Archery Northern Ireland, Scottish Archery and Welsh Archery Association. Under Archery GB are eight Regional Societies and many different county societies, it is affiliated to the World Archery Federation. The society's motto is: "Union and Courtesie". Archery GB is the trading name of the Grand National Archery Society, a company limited by guarantee no. 1342150 Registered in England Archery GB, is the governing body for all forms of archery in the United Kingdom, including target archery, field archery, flight archery and Clout archery. The society is responsible for over 1000 clubs and 40,000 registered members across the UK, all of whom may receive the magazine Archery UK four times a year, included in their affiliation.

It organises its own national tournaments and is responsible for training coaches, as well as ensuring affiliated clubs are covered by their public liability insurance policy. These costs are covered by affiliation fees, which all club members pay, both to county and regional associations and Archery GB itself; the first Grand National Archery Meeting was held on the Knavesmire at York in 1843 but the Grand National Archery Society itself was not founded until 1861, when it met at the Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool. It confined its early activities to organising the Annual National Championships, being at that time just one of many archery Societies. Following this, it became mandatory – rather than optional – for every archer who wished to enter a competition or shoot at a club to become a GNAS member for insurance purposes, administration was through clubs and regions. Three older and important societies – all of which survive today – were the Royal Toxophilites, the Woodmen of Arden, the Royal Company of Archers.

They are independent of the GNAS. With archery now established in the Olympics, GNAS/Archery GB has seen many international successes and British archers have won a total of 4 medals since the restoration of the sport in the 1972 Olympic Games. At the Annual General Meeting held at Lilleshall on 19 April 2008, an official announcement was made confirming that "Archery GB" would become the trading name of the GNAS. An item in the Summer 2008 edition of Archery UK, the official GNAS magazine, states: This seminal moment in the Society's history formalises a transition, in its infancy with the elite archers sporting new Archery GB branding. From this point on, the Archery GB brand will represent all facets of the organisation including the Olympic team, coaching programmes and membership; this change has come due to recognition that the Grand National Archery Society brand, whilst close to many hearts, does not reflect the breadth and standing of the organisation representing British archery on a global scale.

The logo is outdated and rather pale and the name conjures up images of an insular organisation with a penchant for horse-racing, an unfair reflection of a governing body of such stature. Official website

Mount Lebanon Shaker Society

Mount Lebanon Shaker Society known as New Lebanon Shaker Society, was a communal settlement of Shakers in New Lebanon, New York. The earliest converts began to "gather in" at that location in 1782 and built their first meetinghouse in 1785; the early Shaker Ministry, including Joseph Meacham and Lucy Wright, the architects of Shakers' gender-balanced government, lived there. Isaac N. Youngs, the society's scribe, chronicled the life of this Shaker village for half a century. Youngs designed the schoolhouse built there in 1839. Holy Mount, where Shaker services were held, has a spur ridge, called Mount Lebanon. In addition to the Shakers' central Ministry, notable residents at Mount Lebanon's North Family included Elder Frederick W. Evans, known for his public preaching, his partner, Eldress Antoinette Doolittle, succeeded by Anna White, M. Catherine Allen artists Sarah Bates, Polly Anne Reed; the North Family was known for publishing a book of poetry, Mount Lebanon Cedar Boughs: original poems by the North family of Shakers, Anna White, ed. with a number of poems by Cecilia Devere and Martha Anderson.

In 1787, the Church Family housed 57 male and 48 female Shakers, for a total of 105. In 1789, the Church Family's two orders housed 117 male and 116 female Shakers, for a total of 233. Numbers fluctuated according to the vigor of Shaker missionaries; the total dropped to 130 in 1806 gradually rose to 240 in 1843 in the Church Family. From that point, membership eroded further. In 1879, the Church Family housed only 54 male and 88 female Shakers, for a total of 142; the closing of smaller communities and consolidation into the larger villages postponed dissolution for several decades. In the 1940s, due to aging members and declining membership, the Shakers sold the site to Darrow School. Throughout the subsequent years, the site has been managed by several different owners. Darrow owns what remains of the Church and Center Families, while Shaker Museum | Mount Lebanon manages preservation and operates tours of the North Family. Mount Lebanon's main building became a National Historic Landmark in 1965.

Although the first of the Shaker settlements in the U. S. was in the Watervliet Shaker Historic District, Mount Lebanon became the leading Shaker society, was the first to have a building used for religious purposes. Benson Lossing documented that meetinghouse and a few other buildings when he visited the Shakers in 1856. Mount Lebanon is located where Shaker Rd. merges with Darrow Rd. off US 20 in New York. The North Family buildings are preserved as the Shaker Museum.
