Today in Middle-earth: October 9-20

Flight to the Ford by John Howe
On October 9th in the year 3018 of the Third Age, Glorfindel sets out from Rivendell; on the 11th he meets the Black Riders and drives them off the Bridge of Mitheithel. Frodo and his companions cross the bridge two days later. At dusk on the 18th of October, he is found by Glorfindel; meanwhile, Gandalf arrives in Rivendell. On October 20, Glorfindel assists Frodo across the Ford of Bruinen, where the horses of the Black Riders are carried off by a large current.
