I first stumbled across the term "Buford's Gap" as a teeneager, burrowing
through all the history books in the Virginia Room of the Roanoke Library,
nearly sixty years ago. The books said the Virginia & Tennessee Railroad
crossed the Blue Ridge Mountains at Buford's Gap, but I could find no
further information on "Buford's Gap." With each successive stumbling over
that name, the desire to figure it out has become more intense.
