From The Publisher

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year. You’ve heard it from me before - - June is the best month of the year. With transitions from spring to summer, from school to break, from work to play, June celebrates graduates, dads, cars, horses and family fun. Most family calendars are booked with vacations, camps, outdoor events, concerts and celebrations. Centered in this issue of the magazine is the Eighth Annual Best of Warrenton survey. Warrenton features some of the finest places, people, services and shops you will find anywhere. We, at Warrenton Lifestyle and Piedmont Press, are proud of our local businesses and delighted that we found a way for you, the community, to honor and promote a large majority of them. To encourage you to consider shopping locally, only area businesses, people and organizations are eligible. This is consistent with our advertising policy. The Warrenton Lifestyle does not accept advertising from businesses outside our taxbase, Fauquier County. We believe the upside value of a healthy hometown economy far outweighs the loss of ads we could get from other counties. We thank our advertisers who have supported us in this process. Look at the enclosed ballot, go online and complete your choices through our website at www.warrentonlifestyle.com or on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/warrentonlifestyle. There are a few new categories and some were eliminated. We’ve also removed eligibility for many of the big box/chain stores. There is a pull down menu for almost each category to simplify your choices and make our tabulation process more automated. And, you could win our big $300 cash prize just for voting!

Looking for things to do in June? Look no further. Here are some of my favorites: Friday, June 7, offers us another First Friday on Main Street. My family and I enjoy these community evenings immensely. The children have a great time, while Holly and I revel in the neighborly conversations. Music, crafts, food and, of course, many of our local merchants will remain open. Sunday, June 16th, is Father’s Day, an obvious favorite of mine being a dad of four terrific children. There is nothing better than to hang out with my family and take a visit to downtown to see the Father’s Day Car Show (see cover photo) on Main Street followed by some ice cream. The show is sponsored by the Greater Warrenton Chamber of Commerce. www. warrentonchamber.org. Pretty women, handsome gents, sumptuous tailgates, warm summer evenings, and the excitement of pounding hooves means it is time for Twilight Polo at Great Meadow, now through September. Gates open at 6:30 p.m. each Saturday. www.greatmeadow.org. On Saturday evenings throughout the summer, families, neighbors and visitors gather for the Bluemont Outdoor Concert Series in Warrenton across from St. James Church on Culpeper Street. Enjoy jazz, bluegrass, Celtic music, rock, rhythm and blues, zydeco, African dance, folk music and more. Many families bring picnics to enjoy during the show. No pets or alcohol. For more information call (540) 341-0988 or visit www. bluemont.org.

Pick up a sport, join a 5K race, grab some clubs for a golf tournament, explore our parks (try Whitney Forest), visit our local wineries, go for a swim, dine al fresco, take a walk, or ride a bike trail. Get out! Enjoy June. You deserve it.

Customs &


Music Series a Community Tradition by George Rowand

Close your eyes, and you can almost hear the entrancing beat of the Pan Masters, the steel drum orchestra that plays an eclectic range of music, from island sounds to their take on composers from Bach to the Beatles. It’s summer, and the Bluemont Concert series is about to crank up for another year of great concerts in Old Town Warrenton. Thirty-one years since it first arrived, the series promises to provide musical entertainment at a reasonable price. “Our goal is always to present a wide variety of cultural, world-class performing artists who you might not get to see anywhere else around here without traveling to Washington, D.C. or to Wolftrap,” explained Lily Dunning, executive director of Bluemont. “This summer, we can expect to see Bluegrass, blues, jazz, and our Caribbean steel band music is very popular in Warrenton, especially.” The unique organization brings concerts to Leesburg, Middleburg, Winchester, Ashland, Fredericksburg and Culpeper, in addition to Warrenton. In terms of what one gets, it’s an inexpensive way to spend an evening. “We have prices that are affordable to all,” Dunning said. “We do have a requested admission of five dollars apiece, and we have a number of discounts, and volunteers get in for free. It’s meant to be accessible to all members of the community, and it’s right here, right downtown on the Warren Green in Warrenton. It’s meant to be a really accessible event, bringing amazing cultural acts that you wouldn’t get to see anywhere else. It’s a great cultural experience.” 8

Tom Cunningham Orchestra played for a large crowd in 1992.

How It Started

“My father started this with a group of friends in 1976,” Dunning said. “They wanted to have some music and dances, and they started with some English country dances, and it kind of evolved from there. They would have the dances and a potluck supper, and they’d pass the hat around to pay for the performers.” The organization has now had almost 300 concerts in Warrenton, but the summer shows are but the tip of the iceberg when it come to performances. “We do a local health care outreach benefit concert free to nursing homes before each of our summer concerts, so we’ve done close to 300 of those as well,” Dunning stated. Then there is the schools program where entertainers go into local schools and perform for the students.

“The school program has been very successful,” said Doug Larson, a former chairman of the board of Bluemont. “The arts and education program, where you bring in somebody like [folk singer] John McCutcheon to a school or some of the performers that have an environmental approach to things, or puppets … there have been some wonderful, wonderful groups that have come into the schools and spent a portion of the day giving concerts to the kids in schools or working with teachers to tie into their curriculum. That’s been a more substantive kind program that I think is not well known about Bluemont.” Larson said that what Bluemont presents in schools often is more than just entertainment.

I do it to stay grounded. Trading in a 36-year career as a flight attendant for life as a Pilates instructor was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Not only does working at Old Town Athletic Club keep me grounded (in more ways than one), I’m able to help others transform their lives. ~ Susan K.

“There’s thousands of students that have been exposed to Bluemont concerts in their schools and oftentimes with a bit more than just the concert,” he said. “It could be tied to their curriculum. During African American History Month, there’s a dance company that comes and does West African dances, and it really sort of ties into what the students are studying at that particular time. That’s been a very successful program.” The economic downturn of the past few years has impacted the series, however. “We’re doing eight concerts in Warrenton this year,” Dunning said. “In year’s past, we’ve done 10. There has been some drop in local funding, but we’re pretty pleased that we’ve been able to sustain a lengthy concert series. “It evolved into a community event around Virginia that includes our health care performances as well as our school programs,” Dunning continued. “Each series is really a community effort, just in terms of the number of partnerships that we make, to make them happen. We partner with local businesses to sponsor concerts to make them happen, but they also donate things to be raffled off at intermission. Non-profit organizations sell refreshments at intermission as a little fund raiser.”

Getting Involved

Bluemont board member Ann Martella said that it was her initial reaction to a concert that impelled her to become involved in the organization. “I’ve been involved with Bluemont for the last 17 years,” Martella said. “When I first arrived here, it was a Saturday night, and we heard the music downtown, so we wandered down. There was a very nice concert going on, and I’ve kind of been hooked ever since.” Martella said that she has been working most with First Night Warrenton, the New Year’s Eve program. One of the aspects of Bluemont seems to be the continuing appeal the concerts has on kids. “I have three kids, and they love Bluemont,” Martella said. “My oldest was volunteering before she could talk. We went to First Night, and we set up a playpen beside the welcome table, and she would stand there and hand out the programs.” “My kids were very small in the early days, and they could come to the concerts and dance in the street bluemont concert continued on page 12 10

and really participate in the music,” Larson added. “It was a nice way to introduce children to performing arts at a price that was affordable for a family. Still is. It’s really a great opportunity for families. “For a really popular group, you’d have a thousand people there,” Larson added. “It was packed up and down Culpeper Street. It was kind of a mob scene, and that always brought a bit of excitement to the concert and the town.” Larson said that the inexpensive nature of the concerts makes it easier for one to give something different a shot. “There are things that you might not have gone to on your own, but when you actually went, you discovered that it was really quite enjoyable,” he said. “It’s a nice, low risk kind of way to hear some different kinds of music. We had the choir from Christ’s College, University of Cambridge, which was touring in Washington, and they came to Warrenton. It’s the oldest choir in Christendom. So one Saturday you had

life,” she explained. “I took a different job right out of college, and that was a great experience, but I had the opportunity to come back and work for Bluemont in 2012, and I couldn’t resist.”

Dunning said that she can hardly remember a time when there wasn’t Bluemont.

The link from one generation to another makes the series special, it seems.

“I’ve been doing this pretty much all my

“I think a lot of people have very fond memories of being on Culpeper Street listening to a concert when they were little kids,” Larson said. “My daughter will still come back to the steel band concert … 25 or 30 years later. There’s a nice sort of continuity there.” Dunning echoed that sentiment. “What I think is really special about these concerts is the fact that they’ve been going on for 30 years,” she stated. “These are places where the community really gathers, and magic really happens. Some of these people started coming as children, and they have come back and brought their children. It’s been a generation to generation experience that people have been able to share. Couples meet at our concerts. They sometimes get engaged at our concerts. It’s just become this special community that the people of Warrenton get to share, the spirit of the community.”

Determining the Right Placement for Your Loved One with Dementia by Kari K. Brizendine, PT, CWS and Marilyn Novack, LPTA

A dementing process will prove challenging for the person suffering the illness as well as the family. During this stressful time, decisions about placement and caregiving can be especially difficult. While it is possible to successfully setup a home for safe management, it is also possible to find exceptional care outside the home .The following are some suggestions to make placement outside of the home less stressful and more successful.

Would your loved one feel at home in this facility?

Next, educate yourself about the staff. Is there an administrator who is willing to meet and talk to you? Ask to meet the attending physician. Ask about staff retention and staff to client ratios. Ask about licensed medical professional availability. Examples of which are doctors, nurses, dieticians, physical and occupational therapists and speech pathologists. Ask about staff Once a facility is identified training on dementia. What as a possibility, make an are their annual requirements? unannounced initial visit to see What do they do beyond this how the staff reacts. Are they to make sure their team is calm and professional? Are they skillful in meeting the needs pleasant and accommodating? of persons with dementia? Do they offer an appointment Look at the overall demeanor for a return visit and tour? of the staff. Are they wellAsk for references from groomed?

individually without rushing. What are the leisure opportunities? Meet with the activities or recreational department. Look for resident participation in the activity. The activity director should be encouraging participation, not performing the entire process. Choose a place where physical and emotional well-being is emphasized. Ask about roommate selection. Can your loved one transition to greater levels of care within the facility? Does the dementia unit have emergency exit alarms and /or coded doors? Inquire about pharmacological policies. Antipsychotic drugs or restraints should not be the first line of defense against adverse behaviors. Is there an open visitation policy? Consider your own well-being. What support is available for you? What support is available

for the caregiver or the family? Are there family nights, family support groups, or opportunities to serve on family council committees? How does the facility plan to inform you of changes or incidents involving your loved one? Please know that the decision to place your loved one is individual and what is determined best by you and your family may be completely different than the course of another. Others will be quick to give opinions but try not to take this to heart. The first step to helping others help you or your loved one with dementia is to know everything you can possibly know about their routine. We call this “My Way� for example; knowing the specific preferences of an individual will make continuity of care possible and dementia continued on page 18 Warrenton Lifestyle

allow the person to remain as independent as possible. An example would be found in meal preferences. Does he/ she eat a hot breakfast? Do they prefer cold cereal, do they eat as soon as they arise, and do they wait until later in the morning. Do they read the paper, drink coffee? Do they prefer to sleep in or get up early? How about lunch do they eat a cold sandwich or do they expect a hot meal. Do they prefer a bath or a shower? When? Has your loved one always worn a dress?, a hat?, or do they prefer pants? Knowing MY Way is a great reference for the future. We recommend that everyone, whether they have dementia or not, record their personal preferences and keep this with their safe papers. Making the living quarters familiar is also important. You want a facility that will allow personalization of their living quarters. In addition, though it is tempting to start fresh with new articles of clothing, decorations and toiletries, your loved one will be more successful if these items belong to them and are familiar from the past. For example, that old and familiar well-worn sweater may remain important in the care of your loved one as would using the same soap that may have been a part of their routine throughout their life. Knowing their way will be helpful in determining placement as well. A facility that is excellent will tailor their expectations to fit into the person’s way. If someone loves to garden, you would definitely

wish to have gardening available- things like raised garden beds, houseplants etc. would be important. Community outings or social events should be geared toward specific interests. Options should be available for activities that are meaningful. Reality orientation is not as important as validation For example, reading current events might not be as meaningful to the individual as reminiscing about the past. Watching a video on TV would not be as meaningful to some people as mixing brownies or dancing to music of their time. As mentioned earlier, facility should be open to visitation at varied times. Know that there may be several shifts of people working with your loved one, get to know each shift. Communication should be evident between the shifts and amongst the staff…And You! Sometimes we expect to see everything in order when in fact a little mess may indicate active intervention. For instance, if there are brownies being made as an activity, your loved one should be participating- there may be spills and mistakes with the process but the person with dementia should be involved. The facility staff should allow the individual to perform the activity with support and “Do with not for”.

and be able to identify when their level of dementia has increased. Creative treatment interventions should be utilized to motivate your loved one to participate. For example, a physical therapist placed house plants in a patient’s room to motivate her to stand and balance while watering them. This was also a way for the staff to motivate her to get up out of bed. Walkers or assistive devices should be adapted to encourage use. An occupational therapist made a walker into a medicine cart for a retired nurse so she would always keep it with her! It was a residual memory for her not to leave those medicine’s unattended! A speech pathologist trains those working with your loved one to achieve a safe swallow or an Occupational therapist can give the tools and training for as much independence as possible with self-feeding. The facility should not encourage the use of incontinence products. Incontinence is NOT a normal part of aging nor is it

to be accepted just because someone happens to have dementia. The nursing staff and the rehab team should be willing to look at creative ways to reduce the likelihood of incontinence through the use of scheduled toileting, environmental modification, and strengthening and balance training to reduce toileting accidents. The staff should validate the feelings of the person with dementia and enter their reality, not expect them to enter ours. They should be skilled at keeping your loved one calm, safe and happy. The perception of what is possible for your loved one can often make the difference in the care they receive. They should know your loved one for the person they are and have always been. Exploring the suggestions above in any order will help you to eliminate facilities that are not conducive to Dementia Possible Care and assist you in determining the best possible placement for current and future needs.

A therapy department should be available on site with a consistent staff that is trained in dementia management. This team should be involved with the facility and know when someone has fallen, had difficulty with a meal

We Resolve. . . Work It Out at Piedmont Dispute Resolution Center At the non-profit Piedmont Dispute Resolution Center (PDRC), a Piedmont United Way agency, these words aren’t a once-a-year New Year’s declaration. Helping people navigate through conflict is what staff and volunteer mediators do every day. In its 23rd year of operation, the Center is located at the corner of S. Fourth and Main Streets in historic Old Town Warrenton. “It always amazes me when individuals react with shock when they are part of a conflict—as if conflict was an unnatural occurrence,” says Services Director Susan Lease-Trevathan. “In fact, conflict is a natural part of life. What is abnormal— at least to me—is that most people live their lives with no instruction in conflict management. That creates the perfect need for mediation,” she said. Mediation is a process in which people with a conflict work with a neutral person to reach an agreement that addresses the needs of all participants. It allows you the opportunity to be heard and understood, and to hear and understand the other party. It is not adversarial; it helps you work with the other party to solve your dispute. You design an agreement so it specifically addresses your concerns. Most of PDRC’s 1,000 mediation referrals in 2012 came from the general district and juvenile and domestic relations courts in a seven county area including Fauquier, Culpeper, Rappahannock, Madison, Orange, Spotsylvania and Stafford. Fauquier accounted for 375 of the referrals. Typical disputes handled include child custody, visitation and support, landlord-tenant, consumer-merchant and neighborhood issues. The Center also offers elder decisionmaking mediation for families facing difficult senior-related issues.

Divorce Mediation You don’t need a case in court to utilize PDRC’s mediation services. The Center has expanded its divorce mediation services for which it charges modest sliding scale rates. Marlene Hahn, a former family law attorney and Supreme Court of Virginia certified mediator leads the Center’s cadre of divorce mediators. “Anything that saves the divorcing couple from greater financial and emotional stress is highly desirable during this traumatic period of their lives,” according to Ms. Hahn. “This is what makes divorce mediation so compelling.” “While divorce is never easy, mediation can, nevertheless, reduce heated emotions, expense and time associated with this major life change,” she said.

Business and Homeowners Association Mediation The Center’s services are also available to assist businesses and homeowner’s associations, among other groups, settle their disputes out of court and amicably. Jon E. Trevathan, a transactional attorney in private practice and a former economist with U.S. Department of Commerce, heads this team of experienced and talented mediators.

Workshops and Community Resources A grant from the Loeb Foundation has enabled PDRC to expand its video library. This has allowed PDRC to offer customized workshops and trainings to schools, organizations and businesses. Learn more about PDRC, its services and workshops by visiting www. PiedmontDisputeResolution.org or call the Center at (540)347-6650.

“One of the main objectives in family mediation is to protect the interests of children,” explains Assistant Services Director Meryem Grammick. “Another priority is to help parents establish and/or maintain consistent involvement in their children’s lives. Children are often severely affected by conflict between parents. The child’s stress can lead to incidents of juvenile delinquency and other self-destructive behavior.”

The Warrenton Branch Line Continues to Serve By John T. Toler

The link to the main rail line is now a link to Warrenton’s colorful history & Alexandria Railroad at Warrenton Junction (Calverton).

Railroads Come to Virginia

The first practical steam engine, the “Tom Thumb,” was built by Peter Cooper (1791-1883) in 1830, and within 20 years, locomotive technology had improved to the point where railroads were quickly overtaking the earlier canals and turnpikes as an efficient way to move goods and people. The opportunities presented by the railroads attracted investors, and states including Virginia considered new railroad projects as part of their public works.

Since opening in 1998, the Warrenton Branch Greenway has been a popular trail for walking, jogging, cycling, skating – and of course, walking the dog. It was built on railroad bed from the Depot to the bridge across the Eastern Bypass, passing through a lot of Warrenton’s history.

Not long after it was completed in 1998, the Warrenton Branch Greenway became one of Fauquier County’s most used trails. According to information posted at the site, in 2011 over 116,000 visitors walked, jogged or cycled on the Greenway, and the number keeps growing. A “linear park,” the Greenway starts at the old Warrenton Branch railhead at the end of South 4th Street, and runs 1.48 miles to the railroad bridge crossing the Eastern Bypass. It was the result of a cooperative by the Fauquier County Parks and Recreation Department, the Town of Warrenton, and a local citizens’ group. Major funding for the original project was provided by a $443,000 grant from the Virginia Department of Transportation. 24

Paved and partially fenced, the Greenway follows the old Warrenton Branch line roadbed. In the old railyard, one can find a restored Norfolk Southern caboose, examine a working rail switch, and study other artifacts collected by the Piedmont Railroaders, a group of local railroading enthusiasts. In addition to offering a pleasant walk under an arbor of trees, the Greenway is a window into Warrenton’s colorful past: the early commercial and industrial development, life during the Civil War, and the changes brought at the close of the 20th century. Central to it all was the Warrenton Branch line, the nine miles of single track completed 160 years ago that linked Warrenton to the main line of the former Orange

Early on, legendary engineer Claudius Crozet (1789-1864) had proposed that a continuous line be built between Mississippi and Washington, D.C., which would have passed through Fauquier as part of the last leg to the Nation’s Capital. One of the first proponents of building a railway system in Virginia was Gov. John B. Floyd (1806-1863, governor from 1849-52), who in 1850 urged lawmakers to end public funding for improvements on canals and apply the money to railroads instead. The Orange & Alexandria Railroad, incorporated by an Act of the Virginia General Assembly in March 1848, was one of the enterprises that would benefit from the new focus. In the Act, the O&ARR was charged with building a railroad “…from Gordonsville in the County of Orange to the courthouse of the County of Culpeper, and from thence to the city of Alexandria.” The first annual meeting of the O&ARR board was held in branch line continued on page 26 Warrenton Lifestyle

branch line continued from page 24

Warrenton in May 1849, where George M. Smoot of Alexandria was elected president, along with five directors. Three of the directors – Culpeper native John S. Barbour Jr. (1820-1892), Charles Stoven and Charles Hunton – represented the Virginia Board of Public Works, which provided 3/5 of the money for the new line. The O&ARR board voted to hire competent engineers to survey at least two possible routes. Their first choice for the chief engineer was Robert E. Lee, who declined, due to “…his government work and an upcoming trip to Florida,” according to the Lee family papers at the Virginia State Historical Society. Ultimately, Thomas G. Atkinson was hired for the position. The survey project was divided into three sections, but the goal of connecting the county seats along the line proved to be a problem. The grades for both Warrenton and Fairfax Courthouse were deemed to be too steep to be practical, and they were not included. However, the citizens of the two towns demanded that they be served by the line, so it was decided at a meeting held on December 29, 1848 that the line be run through Fairfax Courthouse, and a branch off the main line be built west to serve Warrenton. By August 1850, the final location of the main line was selected, and rightof-way acquisition was started. At the request of the Warrenton Town Council, the Virginia General Assembly passed a supplemental Act on March

Gov. John Floyd did much to encourage the development of early railroads in Virginia.

Elected president of the Orange and Alexandria Railroad in 1854, John S. Barbour Jr. served until 1881.

7, 1851, authorizing the branch line. Construction of the main and branch lines began late in the summer of 1851.

In order to accommodate the trains on the single track, a turntable was built in the Warrenton railyard, and a wye at the Warrenton Junction end to allow the engines to change direction. The turntable was powered by steam drawn from the engine’s braking system, while the triangular wye allowed engines to reverse direction with a three-point maneuver. Cheaper to build and operate than a turntable, the disadvantage of the wye was that it required a lot of space – available at Warrenton Junction, but not in Warrenton.

Being off the main line – but still connected – was popular with the citizens of Warrenton, many of who wanted to remain a safe, quiet place rather than becoming a “railroad town.” Warrenton contractor John G. Beckham was selected to build the ninemile branch line, for which he was to be paid $100,000. Construction of the line progressed well until Beckham’s crew ran into heavy rock formations at the site of the present-day Vulcan Quarry. Beckham had to request additional money to complete the job, which was finished on December 21, 1852 – about the same time the main line was completed.

Once the main and branch lines were connected, the train station in Warrenton was open for business, with John L. Fant appointed station agent. branch line continued on page 28

Travelers coming into town on the Branch line in the early 1860s were greeted by the low-roofed depot and Warrenton skyline, including the spires of St. James Episcopal Church (at left), the old Methodist Church on Culpeper Street (center) and the Courthouse (right). Library of Congress.

Locomotives used on the Warrenton Branch and main lines, included the ‘Warrenton’ and the ‘Alexandria,’ powerful 4-4-0 designs built by Richard Norris & Sons of Philadelphia similar to this engine.

branch line continued from page 26

The presence of the new line had an immediate effect, as passengers, freight and mail shipping shifted from the turnpikes, stagecoach line and canal to the railroad. It was now easy to travel or send produce from Warrenton to the main line at Warrenton Junction, and from there to Alexandria, Washington, D.C., and points south. In September 1854, Warrenton shipped out nearly 450 tons of freight, and received over 570 tons over the branch line. This put Warrenton second only to Gordonsville, at the southern end of the line. Locomotives on the O&ARR were named for places along the route they served, including the “Warrenton,” the “Fauquier,” and the “Alexandria.” The

“Warrenton,” for example, was built for the O&ARR in 1856 by Richard Norris and Sons of Philadelphia. Like the “Alexandria,” the “Warrenton” had a 4-4-0 wheel arrangement (four small pilot wheels in the front, four large driver wheels, and no wheels following them). The 4-4-0 design was considered the best for negotiating sharp curves and bumpy tracks, and was used for both passenger and freight locomotives. The driver wheels on the “Warrenton” were over five feet high, and driven by 16-inch steam cylinders. This design was typical of a locomotive built more for speed than pulling power. Weighing in at 94,600 pounds, the “Warrenton” replaced the “Miss Betsey,” a smaller

engine that was used during the construction of the line. According to an account in the old Warrenton Flag, the “Miss Betsey” was described as having “a feminine shriek of alarm” for a whistle, while the ”Warrenton” and the “Alexandria” warned people with “…the bearing of a warhorse, and the lungs of a giant.” Other rolling stock owned by the O&ARR at the time included six passenger cars, three mail cars and 67 freight cars. John S. Barbour was elected president of the O&ARR in 1854, and one of his priorities was expanding service, which he planned to do by establishing rail connections between the O&ARR and other regional lines. A connection was made linking the line to Lynchburg, and profits continued to increase, although interest on the corporate debt was still high. By 1860, the O&ARR was carrying over 100,000 passengers and 34,000 tons of freight annually.

The Civil War and Aftermath

All of this ended with the outbreak of the Civil War. Because of their strategic importance, in May 1861 the shops and warehouses in Alexandria were seized by Union troops, forcing the O&ARR to build temporary facilities in Gordonsville before moving operations to Lynchburg.

However, the line from Manassas south remained in Confederate hands for a while, and was used to supply the army under Gen. P. G. T. Beauregard that gathered there. Following the First Battle of Manassas in July 1861, the line was used to transport wounded Confederate soldiers south and to Warrenton, where they were cared for in homes and churches. Nearly everyone in Warrenton got involved; builder John R. Spilman built wooden bed frames for the wounded, while John Beckham was charged with finding the hay to stuff in the mattresses. When all the homes and churches were full, John Fant and others were ordered by the Town Council to find additional accommodations. After Confederate forces left Northern Virginia in March 1862, the void was filled with Union troops. A force of 3,500 under Brig. Gen. Oliver O. Howard followed the O&ARR from the south into Fauquier County, and Col. John Geary led his men in from Loudoun County. Until the end of the war, Warrenton would be occupied by Union troops many times, and the Warrenton Branch line used to bring large amounts of materiel to the supply depot established there. Union trains operated throughout the war as the U.S. Military Railroad, under Gen. Herman Haupt.

Stops along the Warrenton Branch line included the stations at Meetze and Three-Mile Switch (present-day Casanova). This view of the Casanova station was taken from the east, toward Warrenton. Courtesy of DeeDee Kanney.

Under Union control, fighting was almost continuous along the O&ARR main line. The Branch line was spared most of the destruction because of its lesser strategic value, but still saw its share of the action. When Gen. George McClellan was relieved of command of the Army of the Potomac in November 1862, he left from the Warrenton Depot and traveled down the Branch line, followed for a distance by loyal followers lamenting his dismissal.

Warrenton Junction (present-day Calverton) was at the main line end of the Warrenton Branch, and the site of a pitched battle between Col. John S. Mosby and Union cavalry on May 3, 1863.


Starting in early 1863, Confederate Col. John S. Mosby began conducting raids on Union trains operating on the O&ARR lines, as well the Manassas Gap Railroad in the northern part of the county. When opportunities arose on the Branch line, Mosby took the fight there. In late April 1863, Mosby learned that most of the Union cavalry assigned to guard the railroads had been sent to fight elsewhere, and planned a raid on branch line continued on page 32

the facilities at Warrenton Junction (Calverton). On May 2, 1863, Mosby and about 100 of his men entered Warrenton, where they were greeted by the residents and given food. From there they moved down the Branch line to Three-Mile Switch (present-day Casanova), where they camped for the night. Early on the morning of May 3, they moved down the line to Warrenton Junction, and made a surprise attack on the 300 men of the 1st West Virginia Regiment camped there. First thinking that Mosby’s men were Union cavalry, the West Virginians reacted slowly, before dropping back and seeking cover in a large house and outbuildings near the tracks. The Confederates soon cleared the outbuildings, but the Union soldiers in the main house refused to surrender until Mosby ordered to the house to be set on fire. The Rangers were clearing the first floor of prisoners when a force of the 5th New York Cavalry charged up the tracks and attacked them. The prisoners broke free, and the Rangers were unable to rally against the Union cavalry. They were driven back down the Branch line, scattering into the countryside before the enemy. The chase continued almost back to Warrenton, and the skirmish cost Mosby at least one death, and between 15 and 20 men wounded or captured. Although bloodied at Warrenton Junction, Mosby regrouped to harass Union trains in the region, with the effect of pulling in more and more Union soldiers to guard the tracks. Soon, Warrenton took on the appearance of an armed camp. In a significant action on January 3, 1864, the Rangers attacked an element of the 1st Maine Regiment guarding the Branch line on the outskirts of town,

capturing 25 men and 45 horses. The Civil War ended in April 1865, and by the end of June, Federal authorities returned control of the railroad to the Virginia Board of Public Works and the Orange & Alexandria Railroad – or at least, what was left of it. The system was in shambles, and since there had not been any shareholders meetings since the war began, John S. Barbour was the president by default. It was his responsibility to get the railroad back into operation. Formally reelected in March 1866, Barbour set an ambitious course, starting with a merger with the Manassas Gap Railroad, which was completed in February 1867. Other mergers and affiliations followed as lines combined, and the Virginia Board of Public Works sought to get out of the railroad business. The chaotic merger, foreclosure and receivership situation continued until 1894, when the southern Railway System was established.

December 1874 emitted sparks that landed on a station building along the tracks owned by Jose W. Casanova, setting it on fire. The building was destroyed, and Mr. Casanova asked the railroad for $1,200 to cover the loss. The railroad company – then operating under a lease agreement with the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad – refused to pay, and Mr. Casanova sued. His attorney was none other than Col. John S. Mosby. After hearing from a number of witnesses, the jury in the case ruled in Mr. Casanova’s favor, but awarded him only $600. Following the establishment of the Southern Railway System, long-needed improvements in Virginia’s railroads, including the Warrenton Branch line, were made. Part 2, to be published in July, deals with the second “Golden Age” of the Branch line, its evolving role in the community, and ultimate conversion to the Warrenton Branch Greenway.

A Guide to Effective Resume Writing and Job Search for Beginners By Jean L. and Dennis A. Taylor

You don’t have much experience, or maybe none at all…so how do you attract the attention of employers when looking for summer employment or a permanent job…? It’s a jungle out there, but with some basic tools, a good attitude, solid work ethic and some face time you can and will get hired! Here are 12 tips to move you in the right direction:

The “Paperwork”

Resumes are designed to get you an interview. Interviews are designed to get you hired. Having a clean, uncluttered and completely factual resume is crucial. Never, ever, exaggerate or add false statements to your resume – this document is intended to be a chronology of what you have actually done in your career, even if you are just starting out. Tap into and use any and all tangible experience – church projects, Girl or Boy Scout activities, leadership roles you had in high school, parttime jobs, etc. Even mowing lawns or raking leaves counts! There are a million different resume formats so just think about what you would want to see if you were the employer. Thinking “easy to navigate and read” is always a great choice. Your resume should not exceed two pages; in fact one is preferable, even if you have 30 years of experience. Quality is much more important than quantity!

The “Sales Pitch”

For a beginning job seeker (actually, for any job seeker) having a compelling cover letter is often more important than your resume. The cover letter is your sales pitch – this is your chance to talk about key “hot buttons” that today’s employers look for…a solid work ethic, your commitment to show up every day and on time, your willingness to work weekends and overtime if and when necessary, and to go the extra mile for the customer. The greatest concern employers have when it comes to young/entry level employees is their work ethic, overcome that objection and you are surely in!

Seek Advice

Ask people you know, love and trust to critique your resume and cover letter. Ask people you don’t know well at all to critique your resume and cover letter. Make tweaks accordingly and measure your results and the reactions you receive.

The “On-Line Job Jungle”

Applying to blind ads, sending resumes to unknown fax machines, and filling out endless applications on-line is one way to find a job…but it is far from the best way. The competition is fierce, there is seldom any form of response (other than an occasional form letter), and you can waste a whole lot of time hoping. You should strive to express yourself, in person, and not rely on electronic channels as your only source of leads.

Look the Part

Put the flip-flops in the closet, those are for the pool. Toss the jeans and tank top; they are not in any way impressive to employers. It’s time to get serious – you don’t need to wear a suit but you do need to dress professionally (that means clean, pressed, coordinated, and muted clothing). Stand up straight, smile, always deliver a firm handshake and maintain eye contact – these little things can make a huge difference.

Meet and Greet!

Network; attend social and business gatherings (business groups like the Greater Warrenton Chamber of Commerce, the Southern Fauquier Business Owners Association and the Fauquier Chamber of Commerce welcome guests to their mixers, luncheons and evening events). Gather your confidence and attend with the intent of meeting as many small, family-owned business owners and managers as you can. Take some copies of your resume with you, but you don’t need to ask these folks for a job, instead ask them for help and guidance as they often know who is hiring. They can help you with networking and introductions. Show off your personality and practice your firm handshake and eye contact.

Give Back Before You Get — Volunteer.

Find a worthy cause, one you believe in, and offer your services, for free – this will help you acquire real-world work experience and references, and you never know, you might just get hired as paid staff after you prove yourself! Don’t forget to ask for a letter of recommendation on the letterhead of the organization; testimonials are the best form of advertising your skills and work ethic!

Connect with the Professionals

Register with local employment agencies and temporary service firms, many companies use these services to acquire pre-screened personnel without having to wade through hundreds of resumes. There is no fee to you as an applicant and if an interview is arranged for you there is a good chance you will be seriously considered.

Use the Tools

Use on-line tools (LinkedIn, Facebook for Business, Branch Out, etc.) to do research and make connections. Investigate and reach out to firms in your geographic area – express interest and ask if you can make an appointment to come by and introduce yourself. Work toward making deeper connections with employers – most hires are made on personality and the genuine feeling of the parties “liking” each other.

Stay the Course

Every “No” you hear means that you are that much closer to a “Yes!” Keep your chin up — you are valuable, worthy and there are opportunities out there for you, but you have to keep going and find your reward.

Saying Thanks

Always send a (clearly) hand written thank you note to anyone and everyone you meet and to everyone who helps you. Collect business cards, get some nice quality thank you cards and some stamps, and send thoughtful notes expressing your thanks and appreciation. This tip alone may set you apart from every other candidate out there resulting in the job of your dreams!

Say “Thank You” Again and Ask for the Job!

Even if you are not sure this is the job for you, sincerely thank the interviewer and ask for the job! It’s easier to turn down a job offer than to not get one at all! Job offers build confidence! Everyone starts somewhere, and hopefully with these tips you will have a much better than average chance of landing a fulfilling opportunity; one that might just last for many, many years to come! May your job search be interesting, meaningful and fruitful.

“We Come Highly Recommended” Very Competitive Rates 39

Fauquier Health Outpatient Procedure Replaces Major Surgery for PAD When James Smith of Bealeton, 65, started having pain in his legs that made it difficult to walk, he thought it was just old age catching up with him. After some investigation by his doctors, though, he learned that peripheral artery disease had caused the blood vessels in his legs to be blocked, inhibiting circulation and causing excruciating pain. Fortunately, after talking with interventional radiologist Adam Winick, M.D., he learned that his condition was treatable. In April, he had two stents placed in the blood vessels of his left leg, which had been much more painful than his right. “It was a breeze. I could actually feel the blood beginning to flow in my leg during the procedure. I hadn’t realized my leg was so cold, from lack of circulation. I could feel it getting warmer. I could have run out of the hospital that day.” Mr. Smith was feeling great almost immediately and experienced a 30 percent increase in blood flow in his left leg. On May 14, he had stents placed in his right leg and his abdomen. The blood flow in his right leg immediately improved by 40 percent, he said. The day after this second procedure, Mr. Smith was feeling fine and talked about resuming his running regime. “I am retired from the Army, and running two miles used to be nothing to me. When my blood vessels became constricted, I couldn’t walk more than half a block.” The 40

relief in Mr. Smith’s voice was clear: “This has been a significant event for me.” Understanding PAD Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is caused by a buildup of fat, cholesterol and other substances in blood vessels, usually in the legs. Over time, this “plaque” can harden and make blood vessels narrower, blocking blood flow. Many people can reduce pain and other symptoms with lifestyle changes and medication. For the most severe cases, where blood vessels are almost fully blocked, doctors usually recommend surgery. In the past, people with severe PAD would require a bypass, similar to a heart bypass. Doctors would remove a blood vessel from another part of the body and attach it to the blocked vessel, so that blood could flow around the blockage. This treatment works well, but it is major surgery. Patients are put to sleep, stay in the hospital for several days and take weeks to fully recover. Now, a new technique achieves the same results without major surgery. New Techniques at Fauquier Hospital Doctors at Fauquier Hospital can now perform what’s called minimally invasive femoral artery revascularization. Instead of a bypass, they insert a tube called a “stent” into the blood vessel to keep it open and allow blood to flow. Using new stents made from special materials, Fauquier interventional radiologists can do this for severe blockages

that used to require bypass surgery. And, with advanced guided surgery tools, it can be accomplished in a short outpatient visit. “It’s minimally invasive, there’s no anesthesia and the appointment takes just two hours,” says Ari Salis, M.D., interventional radiologist with Fauquier Hospital. “And we’re achieving results that are even better than bypass surgery.” In a normal bypass, surgeons open up the leg to connect an artery. With the new technique, doctors insert the stent through a small incision in the thigh. Using an advanced imaging system, they can carefully guide the stent using fluoroscopy, which is like a moving X-ray. The end result: “Lower risk, a shorter procedure, and when it’s done we can close it up with a BandAid,” says Dr. Salis. “And the recovery time is one to three days, versus three to six weeks for traditional surgery.”

Dr. Ari Salis, M.D. is an interventional radiologist at Fauquier Hospital.

Is Your Child Prepared for College and Beyond... by Michelle Kelley, LCSW

So your child is heading to college this fall. Congratulations! For parents and high school seniors alike, this is an emotionally charged and bittersweet time. It is a time to remember and reflect on your teenager’s personal, academic, athletic and extracurricular achievements and milestones from grade school through high school. It is a time to celebrate their forthcoming graduation, emerging independence and transition into young adulthood. It can also be a time of mourning for parents who must come to grips with letting go of the beloved child in whom they have invested so much: so much time, so much hope, so much energy, so much attention, and so much worry. While your teenager is savoring the final days of their high school career and all the traditional rites of passage that go with it -- Senior Prom, graduation ceremonies and graduation parties -- you also deserve to be recognized and commended for all you have done to prepare your child for college, and to promote and develop your child’s self-reliance and independence. You have spent many hours together with your child researching and evaluating college choices, visiting college campuses, and ensuring that college applications were completed and submitted on time. Now that these tasks are behind you, you have yet another important role and mission as a parent: ensuring that your child is emotionally prepared for college.


Emotional Intelligence: A Critical Yet Underdeveloped Skill

Today’s children are growing up in an incredibly fastpaced world that allows little time for introspection or the opportunity to gain self-knowledge. Our graduating seniors appear mature, sophisticated and adult in many ways, but they have not been well-schooled in identifying, understanding and managing the emotions that govern their decision making. In my professional experience counseling teenagers and their parents over the past 20+ years, I have observed that many outwardly successful and accomplished high school students are clueless when it comes to understanding and taking care of the emotional dynamics in their lives. This is troubling, because it is human nature for emotions to drive our actions and choices in life. Emotions, more than logic, often dictate the friends we choose, the people we date and marry, the way we spend our leisure and the careers we pursue. Equally worrisome is that many parents do not know how to teach the crucial skills of emotional intelligence to their children. There are many reasons why this is so: • Many -- if not most -- adults have never been educated in how to recognize and care for their own emotional needs. How can they teach a skill to their children that they have never learned or put into practice themselves?

• Our schools do not make emotional intelligence part of the regular curricula. Our children are encouraged and expected to excel academically and athletically, but they are not offered any regular, consistent or ongoing instruction in the emotional dimensions of their lives. They are not taught how to recognize and deal with difficult emotions, how to set boundaries to protect themselves in demanding or dangerous relationships, or how to apply critical thinking skills to social and dating relationships. • Our society communicates a double standard. We are taught to believe that displays of emotion are acceptable in women but a sign of weakness in men. How ridiculous! The truth is that emotions are a sign of being human. Understanding, managing and learning how to communicate one’s emotions is a sign of higher intelligence, not a sign of weakness! This is what is commonly referred to as emotional intelligence. When your child arrives at college, he or she will be thrust into a maze of challenging new social situations, dating relationships, temptations, distractions and technology traps. Before sending your child off into this brave new world, I encourage parents to set aside time this summer to discuss and equip your child with the critical thinking and emotional intelligence skills they will need to protect their well-being and ensure their success in college and in life.

The Importance of Developing Critical Thinking Skills

Critical thinking can be traced to the Socratic method of Ancient Greece. It is a process of asking questions to trigger a deeper level of thinking and understanding. It is an important skill that everyone should develop, and should be considered a part of formal education. It is imperative that your child develop and strengthen their critical thinking skills to ensure that they do not make emotion-based decisions that will undermine their prospects for success in college, life, and future careers. Your child must also learn how to understand and skillfully navigate the emotional dynamics in social and dating relationships, so as to make wise and healthy decisions for themselves and others.

Information technologies and social media enable us to communicate with others in ways that are exciting, challenging . . . and potentially dangerous. Our children are growing up in a world where a single impulsive or illconsidered posting on Facebook or Twitter can be shared instantaneously and broadly, with serious and detrimental consequences for one’s career and personal well-being. Many teenagers that I have counseled do not fully grasp the longterm and potentially harmful consequences of social media communications. They do not understand that the photos, comments and personal information that they post and share with friends online may be viewed by college admissions officers, future employers and others, thereby putting their reputations, relationships and future employment prospects at risk.

How Critical Thinking Skills Can Save A Teen’s Life

Critical thinking skills can be life-saving. Many of today’s parents are fearful that their child will be tempted to drink and drive or drive and text, thereby jeopardizing their own safety and the safety of others. It’s not enough to tell your child not to text and drive or not to get in the car with someone who has been drinking. Today’s teenagers need to (1) know their options, (2) practice speaking up for themselves in uncomfortable, difficult or dangerous situations, and (3) have the confidence and discernment to speak up and when necessary, remove themselves from dangerous situations. This is where critical thinking skills can be applied. Does your teenager know what to do if he/she were at a party where they felt uncomfortable due to some type of illegal, inappropriate, or harmful activity taking place? Your teenager needs to develop discernment and street smarts to deal with such situations, as well as the confidence to speak up and take appropriate action on his or her own behalf.

Role Playing Reinforces Critical Thinking Skills

Often times a teen has not learned or practiced the phrases and language that will help him or her to speak up confidently or walk away from a potentially dangerous situation. In difficult or uncomfortable situations, your teenager may be paralyzed by feelings of guilt or confusion that impede his critical thinking capacity and ability to act wisely and confidently. This is where role playing can help. During role playing, teenagers practice speaking up for themselves and embed key phrases into their subconscious so they can better access the language they need when the occasion calls for it. Most teens are not able to think through or anticipate all the possible short-term and long-term outcomes and consequences of their own activity or the activity of those around them. Teenagers often harbor unconscious emotions and fears that can easily become obstacles, keeping them from making good decisions. emotional preparedness continued on page 46

These are the types of conversations and discussions that parents need to be having with their teens before they set off for college -- and not just once! When I work with teens I will often do role playing to help them develop and strengthen their critical thinking skills. Knowing what to say is not enough. Your teenager must be able to speak up confidently in difficult situations. This is especially important if your child has a people pleaser personality type.

How Emotional Intelligence Can Improve the Quality of Your Teenager’s Life

Next Steps: Preparing Your Child for the Emotional Demands of College • If you haven’t already done so, initiate a conversation with your child about the topics discussed above. Be casual and friendly; nothing turns a teen off more than making a big deal out of something. • Be a calm and supportive presence in your teen’s life. Avoid being critical or judgmental. You want to be the person your child turns to when they need help.

As stated above, emotional intelligence is the ability to understand and manage your emotional and social world. To succeed in college and in life, your teenager will need to know how to handle:

• If your child already struggles with anxiety or depression, don’t assume these symptoms will go away on their own. Seek out professional and compassionate help before they leave for college.

• Disappointments

• Enroll your teenager in a course or seminar that will help foster these very important tools. There are many worthwhile programs available and will be beneficial during their development into adulthood.

• Break-ups • Academic struggles • Difficult social situations & difficult personality types • Technology traps

Possible Obstacles to Developing Emotional Intelligence • Fragile self-esteem • Anxiety • Depression

Even though your teenager may be eager to break free of your supervision and involvement in her life, you still have an important role to play in supporting and guiding their decision making. Teens heading off to college are most likely experiencing a mixture of excitement and anxiety about what’s to come. Whether they acknowledge it or not, they still need your love, guidance and support. Make sure your child is well equipped to handle life’s difficult moments. They are meant to be speed bumps -- not road blocks.

• Loneliness • Insecurity

Grave Matters

Maintaining Fauquier County Cemeteries by Wendy Wheatcraft

Cemeteries are some of our most significant and complex cultural resources. They expose information about early settlement and land use patterns. Many also reveal an important artistic legacy, displaying the work of skilled stone carvers. Burial marker inscriptions and symbols can teach us about how our cultural values, beliefs, and social norms have changed over time.

are needed. Whether you are simply attempting to read an inscription, documenting the location of a cemetery, or planning to repair or clean a stone marker, do research in advance to make certain that you do no harm. Sometimes, a well-intentioned cleaning can actually cause irreparable damage that may not be evident until months later.

There are many different these sites present a collection of unique artifacts that have ways graves are marked (i.e. with field stones, cedar trees, remained in their original context—some more than 200 etc.), and disturbing the landscape could eliminate evidence years in Fauquier County. Since they are exposed to the of burial sites.

There are times when biological growth may be causing deterioration, and then cleaning is necessary. Biologicals, like algae, lichen, or fungi, can be hazardous to stone because they trap moisture on and under the surface. They secrete acids that can dissolve limestone, marble, sandstone, concrete, and mortar over time. After inserting “roots” into the pores of the stone, the growth swells and shrinks in response to the moisture, which leads to cracking and spalling. On smooth, stable surfaces, biological material may be easily brushed or scraped (using scrapers that are softer than the stone, like popsicle sticks). Most surfaces require wetting the growth liberally before it is gently pulled from the stone. NEVER use bleach to clean a grave marker. Bleach contains salts that damage stone and concrete. DO NOT use acid-based cleaners. Acids dissolve limestone and marble, leaving a glossy or crystallized surface. This damage cannot be undone. DO NOT power wash. DO NOT sand blast.

Plat of the Homestead of Lewis Shumate, 1879. Deeds and plats are good source material when conducting real property research. The Ball-Shumate Cemetery was identified in the approximate location of where the Shumate house site is shown on the plat.

DO choose a gentle, non-ionic cleaner with a neutral pH of 7 or one close to the pH of the stone. For example, the pH of marble is around pH10; therefore, a cleaner with a pH of 9-10 would be best for marble. Biocides, like the product D2, are available for use on stones that have significant biological growth. With biocides, remember to always follow the directions as specified by the manufacturer. DO remember to rinse thoroughly with potable water before and after application of any product. Stone is a very porous material. It takes a LOT of water to properly clean a stone marker. DO use very soft bristle brushes, like vegetable brushes. Try NOT to choose brushes with metal components to reduce the chance of scratching the marker. Tooth brushes are commonly used for small crevices. DO gently clean from the bottom of a marker to the top to minimize streaking. DO NOT make rubbings of stone grave markers. As harmless as this may seem, it actually adds to the deterioration process. DO NOT use flour, talcum/baby power, or shaving cream to help read inscriptions. Shaving cream accelerates biological growth. As an alternative, DO use light reflected on the stone to read deteriorated inscriptions. Hand mirrors, portable photography reflectors and flashlights have been used effectively. DO record your cemetery and its boundaries. Over 200 family, church, and community cemeteries have been recorded in Fauquier County—but there are still many others that have yet to be documented. This may be FOR MORE INFORMATION: the single most valuable act of preservation for Fauquier County Community Development Department, Preservation Planner any cemetery.

Little Steps On The Road To Wellness By Kim Forsten

As the owner of a gym (not mention someone who both advocates and tries to demonstrate a healthy lifestyle away from work), I get lots of questions about working out, wellness, and everything in between. Here are four of the most common ones, along with my responses!

1) How can I eat healthy and be on a budget?

3) I exercise almost every day. Why am I not losing weight?

4) I’m so busy--how can I find time to exercise or eat properly?

Unfortunately, even regular exercise won’t overcome poor eating habits. The ■ Eat seasonally. In-season produce is truth is we have to run approximately seven miles to burn off one McDonald’s cheaper. Quarter Pounder! Is it really worth it? ■ Plan your meals before going to the The path to managing your weight is a store. Research shows that making combination of good eating habits and a list saves us 10% at the grocery exercising regularly. store.

If this sounds familiar, the reality is exercising and eating properly is not your priority. Get real with yourself and make a decision that you are important enough and valuable enough to take care of yourself. It’s about prioritization, plain and simple. Who is your top priority? If you answered your significant other, your family, or your boss, then ask yourself this: Are you really able to do your best for them if you’re not doing your best for yourself first?

This one is easier than you think. Try these simple guidelines:

■ Buy generic brands instead of big names. ■ Go meatless once or twice per week (animal proteins usually cost the most when analyzing our meals). ■ Eat at home and cook at home. Dining out costs more. See a great homemade healthy bar recipe below. It beats any packaged snack bar out there for taste and nutrient quality—and skips the preservatives!

2) If I stop working out, will my muscle turn to fat? When you stop using them, muscles can’t turn into anything other than smaller muscles. Lack of regular exercise and excessively poor nutrition will increase your fat, however, and the less muscle you have, the fewer calories you burn throughout the day. So keep working out—your body will reward you!

SIMPLE HOMEMADE PROTEIN BARS: Preheat oven to 250 degrees. In a large bowl combine: 1 cup walnuts OR raw almonds 1 cup vanilla protein powder (good quality; no fillers or sugars added) 1 cup dried cherries 1 cup dried apricots (halves) preferably unsweetened 1/2 cup whole oats (not quick cook) 3/4 cup honey 1 tsp of raspberry OR coconut extract (optional to your liking, extract isn’t necessary but it does add a little flavor) Once combined in bowl, process in food processor, in batches if necessary. Spread processed mix evenly on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. (I usually put it in drops and then spread it out evenly. This is easier than trying to spread out all of the mix at once.) Cut spread mix into 20 squares BEFORE BAKING. Bake at 250 for 25 minutes. Once cool, store in a sealed, airtight container. (The bars stay yummy for more than a week. They also can be frozen.) These bars provide good fiber and good omegas, and are very satisfying! –Put only one in your lunch box because you will eat more if you don’t! Try it with your plain Greek yogurt, or cottage cheese to amp up your protein--you will get your minimum 20 grams of protein per meal if you do so. Do not eat these with another carb - eat them with a protein source! Nutritional data (grams per bar): Calories-162. Fat-4 Protein-10. Carbs-22.

Grandson of the Gray Ghost by David Goetz

Singleton Mosby, the “Gray Ghost” of the Confederacy, considered by many to be the father of modern guerrilla warfare who later served as U.S. Consul to Hong Kong. His parents were Colonel Mosby’s daughter, Virginia Stuart – a writer for The Washington Post – and her husband, Watson Eugene Coleman. Beverly is generally considered a woman’s name today, but was a man’s name before the turn of the 20th century. He was named to honor his maternal great-grandfather, Beverly Clarke, a powerful congressman from Kentucky in the 1850s. His grandparents, John and Pauline Clarke Mosby, named their first son Beverly, to honor Pauline’s father.

Col. Mosby, Virginia Mosby Coleman & grandchildren, 1907

The photograph of Navy Captain Beverly Mosby Coleman – standing with defeated former general and Japanese Prime Minister Tojo Hadeki in 1946, how puzzling? Why would Tojo – perhaps more than any other person responsible for Japan’s attack on the United States’ fleet at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941 – be relaxed and smiling with an American officer when he was charged with war crimes and on trial for his life in 1946? After the war, then-Captain Coleman was assigned as Tojo’s chief defense attorney and served as head of a group of American military attorneys who defended the 28 senior Japanese accused of war crimes before the International Military Tribunal for the Far East. Interestingly, Captain Coleman and six of his defense attorneys resigned 56

from their assignments due to their “dissatisfaction with the conduct of the trial” of Tojo and others. “Several defense attorneys,” an article in the June 3, 1946, Sarasota Herald-Tribune stated, “have expressed disagreement with what they called loose rules of evidence which, they said, disregard the Anglo-Saxon tradition to provide legal safeguards to a defendant.” (Sarasota Herald-Tribune, June 3, 1946, p. 4) Nonetheless, Tojo and other high-ranking Japanese officials were convicted of various war crimes; Tojo was sentenced to death on November 12, 1948 and hanged on December 23. This was one of numerous highlights of Coleman’s long life and career. Beverly Mosby Coleman was born on January 9, 1899 in Washington, D.C. The grandson of Colonel John

Beverly had a sister, Pauline Mosby Coleman. Their parents divorced when Beverly was three, and the children lived with their mother in Washington. As a youth, he delivered newspapers and attended Bullis Preparatory School. An anecdotal story was related by Mr. Kim Holien, the recently-retired post historian at Forts Myer and McNair, who knew Admiral Coleman and frequently engaged him. He recalled that, as a child, Beverly was taken by Colonel Mosby to Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show when it passed through Washington and that, as Colonel Mosby introduced himself to Buffalo Bill, the star allowed Beverly to ride in the stagecoach with him while it was chased in the arena by “Indians.” What a thrill that must have been! Many years later, Admiral Coleman shared a number of stories with his nephew, Warrenton resident Rex grandson continued on page 58 Warrenton Lifestyle

Cooper, then a student in his late-teens and early 20s. One story he related came from Cooper’s great-grandfather, Colonel Mosby: In 1864, a series of atrocities committed by Federal troops as well as Mosby’s Rangers resulted in Mosby obtaining permission to retaliate in kind for the execution of seven Rangers. A “death lottery” among captured Union troops was held at Rectortown in “Mosby’s Confederacy,” and one of the unlucky Yankees who drew a numbered piece of paper was 13-year-old drummer boy Johnny Daley. He was spared and the Colonel visited him as an adult presenting him with a fine walking cane which he used for years. Cooper also remembers his Uncle Beverly had a great sense of humor and he took him to a Naval Academy football game when he was a teenager. Young Beverly loved the sea and attended the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, graduating with the class of 1922. His assignments after graduation included service on battleships and at the Torpedo School. He resigned from the Navy in 1924 and entered the George Washington Law School, receiving an LLB (Bachelor in Law and Letters) in 1928 followed by practicing law in Washington. Many years later, in 1957, he earned his LLM (Master of Law and Letters). He married Eleanor Parrish Snyder of Washington, D.C. in 1929; they had a son, Charles Parrish Coleman, and a daughter, Victoria Mosby Coleman, 58

from The Fauquier Historical Society, Fall & Winter 1994, p. 2)

As the winds of war began swirling in 1940, he was called back to active duty. First at the Army Industrial College, then in 1941, to duty with the Coordinator of Latin American Affairs. After training and the transport of troops to Europe and the Southwest Pacific, he was assigned as executive officer to the naval advance base unit Acorn ONE and landed with it on Guadalcanal to build an airstrip there near Henderson Field, by then under considerable fire from the Japanese. By the spring of 1943, he was back at Pearl Harbor serving with the Commander in Chief of the Pacific (CINCPAC).

Commander Coleman served in a similar capacity during the capture of Saipan and Tinian Islands in the Marianas, where he stepped on a land mine and burst an eardrum. His hearing was impaired for the rest of his life.

As the United States began a series of island-hopping battles with the Japanese in the Central Pacific, now-Commander Coleman transferred to the staff of Admiral Kelly Turner and served as beachmaster and combat landing control officer. In early 1944, during the capture of the southern islands of the Kwajalein Atoll, Coleman supervised landings on five islands in five days and was highly commended. His official commendation states: “Commander Coleman, the so-called Group Beachmaster, in reality was assigned two jobs, both of which are large enough to demand full time from any man.” (“Rear Admiral Beverly Mosby Coleman, USNR”, News and Notes

He was back in Pearl Harbor in 1945 planning for the assault on Iwo Jima, but returned to Guadalcanal for the Marine Amphibious Corp assaults on three Shimas: Iea, Iheya and Agunni. He was with Admiral Turner in Manila, The Philippines, during the Japanese surrender negotiations, then with an Army unit that made advanced preparations for the arrival of the first division of occupation troops. Following this, now-Captain Coleman served as port director of the Yokohama and president and law member of the military commission trying Japanese who ran prisoner-of-war camps. Later, he went to Tokyo as Chief Defense Council to set up the organization of attorneys on behalf of the 28 senior Japanese military and civilian leaders accused of war crimes before the International Military tribunal for the Far East. After resigning from this post in 1946, he was assigned to the Bureau of Ships. grandson continued on page 60 Warrenton Lifestyle

When war broke out on the Korean Peninsula in 1950, Captain Coleman returned to Tokyo as counsel, and was later assigned to the United Nations Planning Group drafting plans for implementing the Korean armistice in 1953. Captain Coleman served as the United Nations Command Secretary for the Military Armistice Commission at Panmunjom, Korea, meeting daily for months with his North Korean and Chinese Communist counterparts regarding prisoner-of-war exchanges, armistice procedures, investigations and related matters. As a result, he had more personal contacts with the Communists than any other officer in the MAC, and more details about them were successfully acquired by him than any other individual.

Capt. Coleman, et al, Armistice Conference, Panmujon, Korea. Courtesy: USNA

Captain Coleman’s outstanding service to his country earned him the Army Legion of Merit medal; one Navy and one Army Purple Heart; a Navy Commendation and an Army Commendation, as well as a Presidential Unit Citation. He retired as a Navy Rear Admiral (two stars) from the Navy Reserve in 1959 and returned to his family and estate law practice with the firm Faulkner, Shands and Stupar in Washington until 1988. His wife, Eleanor, died only six weeks before he died at The Virginian retirement home in Fairfax, Virginia on August 21, 1996 at the age of 94. Both are buried in the Warrenton, Virginia Cemetery, near Beverly’s mother Stuart and about a hundred yards from Colonel Mosby and the rest of the family.

Admiral Coleman had the reputation throughout his long life for being an extremely self-disciplined and moral man, blessed with a great sense of humor – sometimes caustic – and always with his blue eyes flashing with adventure. One can imagine that he inherited these qualities from his grandfather, John Singleton Mosby. He also loved horses, and was a noted military historian and lecturer. He was the founding director of Planned Parenthood in Washington, D.C., and a member of the Metropolitan Club. He had the highest respect and admiration for his grandfather, John Mosby, who he referred to as The Colonel.
