United States Ford -- Rappahannock River

Posted by Picasa

USS ford was a large stretch of shallows, in the river, which was used for years by the local traffic. During the Civil War this road was a major crossing point from the North into the South for the Union Forces and became a much traveled ford for both infantry and cavalry on both sides of the conflict.
