Genessee_Country_New_York_State_Map_1802_300x200Do you know the area covered by the Greater Western New York Region? – or – Do you only think you know the definition of Greater Western New York? Believe it or not, Greater Western New York was defined by a specific Treaty shortly after the Revolutionary War (and before America began meeting to discuss what became the United States Constitution). In fact, we call the date this Treaty was signed “the birthday of Greater Western New York.” How do you celebrate our region’s birthday? What? You don’t know what date it is? We’ll give you a hint: Greater Western New York shares its birthday with one of the greatest composers in history, a greatest made all the more amazing because he created some of his most admired works despite having lost his hearing. Would you like to find out more about this story? Read “We Preempt Westward American Expansion for…” to discover the fascinating story behind the Treaty (and the unbelievable coincidence experienced by the author as he researched this story.)
