Whether your babies have two legs or four, may you have a very Happy Mother's Day.

Mother's Day was started by Anna Jarvis in Grafton, West Virginia, about 25 miles from my house. During the Civil War, General George McClellan had his Headquarters during the planning of the Battle of Philippi at the Jarvis house. When the house was restored, the rooms used by General McClellan were restored as his headquarters. The Battle of Philippi was the first planned battle of the Civil War and was for possession of the covered bridge across the Tygart River (Shinnston's water comes from the Tygart River). The bridge is still tere and is part of IS Rt 250.
