Ken Bora mentioned leaving the first lady's speech and going to watch "The Last of the Mohicans" and loving the beautiful scenery of this movie which starred Daniel Day Lewis and was made in 1992. Since this is one of my favorite movies -- for the scenery, for the music, for the story -- I googled it. The entire film was made at various locations in North Carolina.
I thought the Mohicans were in the Finger Lakes region of NY. Not so. They were in the Hudson River Valley. The Iroquois, Mohawks, and other tribes were in the Finger Lakes region.
If you have not seen the movie, do so. It is a good one IMHO.
