    By the way, it is properly spelled Culpeper. I lived in Culpeper the first 47 years of my life and hope to return to end my days. The county was in a land grant to the Lord or Baron Colepeper. An early Revolutionary militia flag has Culpepper on it, most families possessing the name do spell it Culpepper, but ever since the town was incorporated the name was spelled Culpeper.

    Culpeper is located about 60 miles southwest of Washington, DC. It's a great place to stay to go on a Civil War vacation. Manassas, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cedar Mountain, and Brandy Station are in easy distance for a drive. The entire Army of the Potomac encamped in the town for the winter of 63-64. A drive down East Street is highly recomended to see the many antebellum homes and other structures. Culpeper is a large town with a decent amout of hotels and restaurants to please.

    I look foward to meeting some Civil War buffs to chat with.
