      Dear Tom,

      Thanks. That is what I thought.....

      BTW, do you happen to have a copy of Shinn's Diary on a CD? I did
      have a copy on a diskette but my current computer no longer
      allows for 3.5 diskettes.

      Yes, it is now the Appalacian Trail. It was wide enough to drive
      a battery of artillery along it.

      Tom;

      This is an older post which I saved and have been reviewing the
      file of saved emails in conjunction with my book project. When
      you cite the Ridge Road in the post below, do you mean that
      little path running from slightly to the left/behind the Mountain
      House to Fox's Gap, intersecting the Old Sharpsburg/Reno Monument
      Road?
