Possible error?

Have not had the chance to visit this thread for a few days.

One of my daughters attended WVU and her husband is a native of WV so I enjoy reading about your beautiful state. My wife & I will be making a short trip there in a few weeks (by car, sadly).

I did notice one possible error: in post #785 concerning the Civil War Monument the marker says it was dedicated 8-21-1901 and that 10,000 people heard a speech by Gen. John Echols but the marker for Gen. Echols (post #787) indicates he died on 5-24-1896. A quick "google" search seems to confirm that date of death is correct.
