      To Be A Virginian, either by birth, marriage, adoption, or even
      on one's mother's side, is an introduction to any state in the
      Union, a passport to any foreign country, and a benediction from
      the Almighty God. --Anonymous

      I agree with Gerry: Murfin's maps are better than Sears'.
      Priest's
      maps are better than Sears'.

      The Carman-Cope "Atlas of the battlefield of Antietam", of
      course, is
      in a class of its own.
