This week on The Historians Podcast, a story about the 1957 Mohawk Nation encampment in Fort Hunter. Also discussed is how Amsterdam’s wealthy Sanford family inspired a 1938 motion picture starring Katharine Hepburn and how a florist, rabbi and judge in the Mohawk Valley were known for their speaking abilities. These stories previously appeared in my Focus on History column in the Daily Gazette.
