Dinwiddie, Virginia

Day 834

     Dinwiddie County, Virginia, was formed May 1, 1752. The county is named for Robert Dinwiddie, born on October 2, 1692 in Glasgow, Scotland. He was a British colonial administrator who served as lieutenant governor of colonial Virginia from 1751 to 1758. Dinwiddie County has more Civil War battlefields than any other county in Virginia. We are spending the night here. No sightseeing, just getting ready to return to Maryland tomorrow. 

     Tidbit of Information: In 1753, Dinwiddie sent a 21 year old George Washington to remove the French from the Ohio Valley. Washington was defeated. This guy would probably not amount to much.
