AirVuz contributor Clark Lupton brings us this excellent wintertime drone video of Lynchburg, Virginia, a city in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.  Lynchburg is situated on the banks of the James River, near the middle of the state.  It's known as the City of the Seven Hills, and it's famous in part for being the only Virginia city not captured by Union forces during the US Civil War.  While the railroads which had driven the antebellum growth of the city were destroyed in the conflict, it was reborn as a manufacturing center.
