Excuse Me. Is this the Way to Yorktown?

“I love to travel but hate to arrive.”
Albert Einstein

It is time to carry you back to old Virginny. Today we are heading down the Fredericksburg Turnpike to Bowling Green. This is part of the route taken by the combined Continental/French army under Generals Washington and Rochambeau on their way to defeat the British Army under General Cornwallis at Yorktown in 1781.

The Old and the New

A farm located just off the turnpike in Spotsylvania County. If you look in the background you will see a new housing subdivision. My guess is that in the next twenty years the houses will be closer in or the farm will be replaced by a shopping center. Progress marches on. Not saying whether it is good or bad. Just facing the realities.
