Hello everyone, I dont post much, but read the emails with interest, being from Kingston a few folks have asked me why the capitol was moved from Kingston NY to Albany. I probably could find the answer with a little quick research, but figured many of you would know the dates and reasons behind it off the top of your heads....thanks for any reply......Jim
