TAM: river in Genesis illumination
FYI: The satellite photo of a river delta in the Genesis illumination is of the Ganges River.
The Library of Congress website (http://www.loc.gov/exhibits/stjohnsbible/stjohns-exhibit.html) incorrectly states that it is the Nile River Delta.

The river is the Ganges. I have asked the Library of Congress staff to change that on their site numerous times. Hmmm… government at work!
