Just like 233 years ago, the Virginians sent a host of volunteers from the Muster Ground to catch Ferguson. With no funding from Camden or Hillsborough or Richmond and with no order from the governor, volunteers used the passwords of Buford, responsibility, commitment, work, and patriotism to gain admission. OVTA, SAR, DAR, HSWCV and friends from the other side of the Blue Ridge and the other side of the Mason Dixon Line presented fine displays. Hundreds of next generation patriots learned what their predecessors on this side of the Blue Ridge started on 24Sep1780. A day out of the class room showed them things they cannot find in their Boston and Philadelphia history books.

Thanks to all the volunteers for a job well done.
