Travel Tuesday: July 4th Excursion

  1. As they used the town name "Salem in Fauquier", that dates the tour as pre-1882. It was 1882 when the Post Office insisted that Salem in Fauquier change its name because mail was being confused with Salem in Roanoke Co., VA. The town of Salem then took the name of one of its most influential residents - Chief Justice John Marshall - and is now Marshall, VA.
