In 1722 Governor Spotswood's treaty with the Indians was ratified, which kept them west of the Blue Ridge Mountains and north of the Potomac River. Early settlers found the Indian trails in Loudoun County and made them into roads. Loudoun County still has miles of unpaved roads, but today's gravel roads cannot give a real picture of the alternatively dry and dusty or muddy early roads which were used for commercial trade and which a large part of General Braddock's army struggled over on its long trip to Fort Duquesne (now Pittsburgh) in 1755 at the time of the French and Indian Wars. The Vestal's Gap Road extended from Alexandria to Winchester in the Valley of Virginia.
