I found a few markers in Charles Town, WV. There may be more, I just found these while downtown. This one is in front of the old Post Office.





Up a few blocks, and to the left, I spotted this marker.



Getting the bike in some of these photos is tough, 'specially in downtown areas. Need a vest with "TOUROID" on the back to explain to the natives why I am trespassing.

A better shot of side one:



And the other side:

Plaque reads:



Interesting bit of history I was not aware of. Looking into the database for historical markers in this state, I could run off a set of tires chasing down markers in this county alone. My life now has purpose. George Washington and / or his clan members slept in every outhouse, doghouse and cat house in this county, and each and every one has a marker.
