    Originally a gap, then a trace, then a wagon road; eventually a road for cars and trucks. Now it has gone back to being what God intended, just a plain old gap.
   For generations our people passed through here to visit in Albemarle and Augusta Counties.
    Sit on a log and use your imagination and watch the full British and Hessian armies captured at Saratoga (chapter 47) marching by on their way to prison camp at the Barracks. Also, watch Stonewall Jackson and his army march through the gap on their way to battle.

    There are more photos of Woods Gap in the previous chapter 52.
