Spotswood park is dedicated to Captain John Spotswood born circa 1748, grandson of Royal Lieutenant Governor Alexander Spotswood of Virginia. Captain John Spotswood, soldier of the American Revolution, served honorably as a member of the Continental Army 10th Virginia Regiment. He was wounded at the Battle of Brandywine in September of 1777 and taken prisoner at Germantown in October of 1777. He retired on February 12, 1781 and died post 1800. Married to Sarah (Sallie) Rowsie on September 19, 1771, they established their home here at Orange Grove on part of his grandfather's original Germanna Tract.
