This is another post representing my visit last week to 359 year old Gloucester, Virginia. Today I share a visit to Walter Reed's birthplace. He was the U. S. Army physician who is highly honored because he made the discovery that yellow fever was transmitted by the mosquito. This plaque is at the home which was his birthplace. An old tree stands as a reminder of a past era and specifically one when a home depended upon a fireplace for warmth.
I hope you have enjoyed your visit with me to the middle peninsula of the Cheasapeake Bay Tidewater Area!
