Drone tribute, Fort McPherson National Cemetery, Maxwell, Nebraska, by Sheriff Mike
Fort McPherson National Cemetery is a United States National Cemetery, located 4 miles (6 km) south of the village of Maxwell in Lincoln County, Nebraska. Administered by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, it encompasses 20 acres (8.1 ha), and as of 2014, it had over 10,000 interments. Fort McPherson was established in 1863 as an outpost to protect travellers along the Oregon and California Trails, and to keep the peace with the local Native Americans. It was named for Major General James B. McPherson, who was killed in action at the Battle of Atlanta. A cemetery was created along with the fort. In 1873, 20 acres (8.1 ha) were set aside to be a National Cemetery, and the remains interred in the original post cemetery were moved to it.
Twenty-three cemeteries were moved from abandoned frontier forts to Fort McPherson; the last of these was moved from Fort Robinson when it was closed in 1947.

Here’s a great property for both the outdoorsman, hobby rancher, or horse enthusiast! This well-built log home is nestled into the edge of the Loess Canyons overlooking the Platte Valley, not far from Fort McPherson National Cemetery. The Seller has done a fantastic job keeping the cedars fairly contained to only the deep draws, leaving plenty of open grassland on the hill tops. There are a total of 206 range acres on this property, with the remaining 13 acres comprising the home site. The property borders Cottonwood Canyon Lake which is part of a State Wildlife Management Area. There’s good crappie, bluegill and white bass fishing in the lake, and huge catfish and walleye have been taken out of the canal from the bridge leading to the property. Numerous deer, both Whitetail and Mule Deer, inhabit the canyons, and they come up to feed on the open pastures at night. There are several great places for a food plot and elevated blinds positioned to take advantage of the deer trails leading up out of the canyons. The range land is watered by a windmill and tank, and all the fences are in good shape. There is a 40’ x 45’ steel building that would make good equipment storage or a good horse barn.
The 2,153 sq ft, 3 bedroom 2 3/4 bath home features a large deck on the east side for dining and hot tubbing, with a wrap around deck enabling views in all directions. The kitchen features a timber coved ceiling, and is open to the living room with it’s soaring windows and timber framing. A large master bedroom upstairs is open to an office space with a railing overlooking the living room, flooded with natural light. There is another bedroom and full bath on the main floor, as well as the laundry room. There is an oversized tub on the main floor, and all plumbing is located in one wall. The basement has a rec room, a third non-conforming bedroom, and a bonus room. The garage on the lower level is accessed through the basement. This is a comfortable, cozy home in the Winter, and an open, airy, indoor/outdoor living space in the summer. The log home construction makes this home very efficient, easily holding heat in the winter and staying cool in the summer. The log home was well built and well-maintained, keeping it airtight and leak free. The setting is peaceful and private, filled with wildlife and possibilities.

【Drone aerial photography】Georgia State Capital, Atlanta, USA, Beautiful scenery of the city
Atlanta (/ætˈlæntə/) is the capital and most populous city in the U.S. state of Georgia. With an estimated 2018 population of 498,044,it is also the 37th most-populous city in the United States. The city serves as the cultural and economic center of the Atlanta metropolitan area, home to 5.9 million people and the ninth-largest metropolitan area in the nation. Atlanta is the seat of Fulton County, the most populous county in Georgia. Portions of the city extend eastward into neighboring DeKalb County.
Atlanta was originally founded as the terminating stop of a major state-sponsored railroad. With rapid expansion, however, it soon became the convergence point between multiple railroads, spurring its rapid growth. The city's name derives from that of the Western and Atlantic Railroad's local depot, signifying the town's growing reputation as a transportation hub. During the American Civil War, the city was almost entirely burned to the ground in General William T. Sherman's famous March to the Sea. However, the city rose from its ashes and quickly became a national center of commerce and the unofficial capital of the New South. During the 1950s and 1960s, Atlanta became a major organizing center of the civil rights movement, with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Ralph David Abernathy, and many other locals playing major roles in the movement's leadership. During the modern era, Atlanta has attained international prominence as a major air transportation hub, with Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport being the world's busiest airport by passenger traffic since 1998.
Atlanta is rated as a beta(+) world city that exerts a moderate impact on global commerce, finance, research, technology, education, media, art, and entertainment. It ranks in the top twenty among world cities and 10th in the nation with a gross domestic product (GDP) of $385 billion. Atlanta's economy is considered diverse, with dominant sectors that include aerospace, transportation, logistics, professional and business services, media operations, medical services, and information technology. Atlanta has topographic features that include rolling hills and dense tree coverage, earning it the nickname of the city in a forest.Revitalization of Atlanta's neighborhoods, initially spurred by the 1996 Summer Olympics, has intensified in the 21st century, altering the city's demographics, politics, aesthetics, and culture.
