Donavon and I found Hampden Sydney to be a beautiful campus. Interestingly,
it took us awhile before we realized that the students were all male! We got
some real good help from the library re genealogy of the early folks. At noon
we ate in a pub-like eatery across from the main entrance where a sign on the
wall read: "Hampden Sydney, where the men are treated like men and the women
are treated like guests." Hmmmmmmm. This college figured greatly in the
lives of Scotish Presbyterians of early Virigina. It began as a place to
train ministers for the pulpit. A large section of land on which the
college was situated once belonged to Robert Rutledge.... Bradshaw History
p. 96 states that 1,272 acres in Prince Edward (near Farmville) were once
owned by Robert Rutledge, a scottish merchant for whom a bridge and ford on
appomattox was named. He was murdered at Mosby's tavern in 1766 by Col John
