    Monument commemorating Salisbury Plain, a piece of land purchased from Thomas 6th Lord Fairfax in 1725 by Henry Lee. It was originally part of the Stafford County "frontier," then became successively part of Prince William County, Fairfax County, Loudoun County, and eventually ended up as part of Fairfax County in 1798. In 1787 the property was divided and a portion went to Richard Bland Lee, the first US Congressman to represent northern Virginia. Location is on a grassy stretch along Lee Jackson Memorial Hwy, between Chantilly Rd and Downs Dr.

    A water fountain memorial to honor all the Eastland, TX citizens who served and sacrificed themselves in both the World Wars.
    There was a CSA memorial right next to this. I chose this one.

    There are 4 statues in front of Casa Italiana commemorating some notable Italians. Here is the one of Giuseppe Verdi, considered the greatest of all the Italian opera composers.

    This plaque honoring earth scientist Dr. William Pecora is on the grounds of the USGS in Reston where he was Director from 1965-1971. Several "Dawn Redwoods" were planted in his memory -- my bike is leaning against one of the redwoods. Dr. Pecora's two major contributions to science in the public interest were the creation of a national earthquake research center at the USGS facility in Menlo Park, CA, and the Landsat series of Earth observing satellites.
