West Virginia 2017

The group car-caravaned deep into West Virginia near the Ohio border.  Interesting but off topic, we briefly visited Point Pleasant, which is a point, and it's pleasant.  We stopped at Red House in Eleanor where Union General Scammon was captured - our President, Tom Moser, grew up in the house.  We visited the home of General Jenkins, the Confederate general who was mortally wounded at Cloyds Mountain.  His replacement was General McCausland.  We drove by his 1880s house.  We also made a brief stop at the Buffalo Academy, where the orphan child McCausland got an education.
