p.s.The Great Wagon Train Road runs through the county where I now live and part of the old road is preserved in a Park. It follows from here in VA to Winston-Salem, NC, then south into SC and GA. It was originally an Indian Trail and later was used by settlers in great migrations from its origin in PA to the South.
