1. The Mosby Gun. The gun captured here eventually found its way to the 45th Infantry Division Museum in Oklahoma City, OK. If the weapon could talk, it would indeed have an interesting story to tell. (Submitted on January 6, 2008, by Craig Swain of Leesburg, Virginia.)
2. Vint Hill Farms History. Slightly off topic, but the nearby Vint Hill Farms has at least one building that may date to the time of the Civil War. Graves of unknown Federal solders are also within the grounds. Skirmishes like that at Grapewood Farm were common throughout this area of Prince William and Fauquier Counties (Submitted on January 6, 2008, by Craig Swain of Leesburg, Virginia.)
3. Mosby’s Raid at Catlett’s Station. Several markers trace the raid and the subsequent pursuit. The grave of Bradford Smith Hoskins mentioned on this marker is pictured on the Greenwich marker page. (Submitted on January 6, 2008, by Craig Swain of Leesburg, Virginia.)
