    Unknown civil war soldiers buried 2 to 5 at a time with a number on top of the tombstone depicts how many are buried in that grave. Lots of blood spilled in Culpeper...

    I'm glad you enjoyed it and there are many good places to eat if passing through. I live about 45 mins from Culpeper at Lake Anna and you're welcome to come by if in the area.

    That’s a neat little spot about a half mile from my house. I’m going to have to go see some of the places you’ve listed.

    Thanks for the pictures and continuing history lessons Eric. I enjoy your reports very much. But; don't you think your plate on the scooter is a bit "presumptuous". HaHa; Sea Monster indeed. LOL.
