Liberty or DeathDon't Tread on MeLess than half mile eastward is the famous spring around which, from their rendezvous on lands of Morgan and Bedinger, July 17th, 1775 Captain Hugh Stephenson's Company of Virginia Riflemen, 98 volunteers started on their bee-line march to Boston Town, 600 miles away, reporting to General Washington on August 11th. They all pledged to meet at this spring fifty years hence, if alive.
