Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Relics - Cartography

Thank you, Richard, for creating these vlogs. I am very interested in learning more about the War Between the States because my great, great grandfather, Elijah Shaver, served in the 36th Virginia Infantry. His last engagement was the Battle of Waynesboro. He managed to get back to his family in Christiansburg, and ended up in West Virginia.

Excellent and interesting video Richard. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us. Now that I have seen your map I must have one for Albemarle, where I live. Keep up the good work!

Hello Kennan. If you fine one like it for Albemarle, let me know - I'd like to have one as well - Happy Easter!

I enjoyed this episode so much; it makes me extra sorry that it took me so long to get around to viewing it it. I loved hearing about your map and wonder - if I had a map of that sort of Albemarle County where I live - would I recognize many of the place names? A lot of them I am sure I would not. Some years ago, the state decided that our rural roads that had only numbers (as mine did) should have names as well and the property owners were allowed to choose the name for their road, so we felt that we were rather making history!

The Youtube video was great; I never would have found that on my own.

Thanks for the kind remarks Pam. The mapmaker's son has one similar to it of Nelson County.
