Battle of McDowell - Highland County

Located on Rt 250 just east of McDowell, about 5 miles west of Head Waters, and about 8 miles west of the Highland County / Augusta County border. (Edit: Oops, not the WV border I wrote by mistake earlier)

For more information on the Battle of McDowell: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_McDowell

Interesting note - Gen Stonewall Jackson was born in my hometown of Clarksburg WV. Click here to see the WV Historical Marker for him.




Historical Marker located on Rt 250 just east of McDowell, about 5 miles west of Head Waters, and about 8 miles west of the WV / VA border.




Same Marker - Side #2




View westbound on Rt 250.





View eastbound on Rt 250. Some GREAT riding just ahead!




Roadside memorial has the marker along with a monument to the fallen.





Close-up of plaque. I just missed the anniversary by a couple weeks.

Shot a Trifecta today..All on route 6 (Patterson Ave., Henrico and Goochland counties)



It was a cool little church, nice to know the history.


Sorry, bad glare on the cell phone camera.. Here's the two-for-one shot. The markers were pretty close together, so I did just the one pic.


Here's both sides of this 'Z-27' sign..



and the bike..

Great day for a ride!

Highland County / Augusta County - Rt 250

Located east of Monterey about 25 miles on Rt 250 at the border of Highland County and Augusta County at the summit (I believe??) of Shenandoah Mt. As I was eastbound ascending the mountain, I was thinking, "Why would anyone go all the way to Deals Gap for twisty roads?" What a fabulous ride!


For more on Highland County: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Highland_County,_Virginia

For more on Augusta County: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Augusta_County,_Virginia




Historical Marker located on Rt 250 at the Highland Co / Augusta Co Line. There is a nice turnout & parking area with a historic area - Ft Edward Johnson (see upcoming post for that marker).




Same Marker - Side #2




View westbound on Rt 250 from the turnout. The scenic overlook (next photo) is to the right.




Scenic overlook westbound.




Speaking of great scenery, this gentleman and his wife were riding a beautiful 1995 BMW R100RT that could almost pass for showroom new. It had "only" 98K mles! Wow!




Too bad you have to ride out through all these twisty roads to get there.

I took a 1/2 day adventure going to most of the historical markers in Culpeper County.


On 522S (Sperryville Pike) north of town.



15N south of town. Road crew was working so I had to park the Littlest Ninja in a driveway.

It's too bad no one is into this HM thing...

Before I started this thread I wondered why no one had already done so...

Now I'm starting to figure it out...tracking these things is a big job!

Z-series signs

Guys, the Z-series signs are placed at county & state borders. Each side of the sign is different. Please post pictures of both sides.

Oh, & keep up the good work!

AMEN TO THAT! I got lazy a few times and let the WV Markers spreadsheet get a month out of date, and it took me several hours to get it straight. Now, I try to do it when a new page starts, and more often if I have time.

The VAHM thread is looking good. You've done a great job getting it organized and rolling.
