The Perils of Rogue’s Road
There was a portion of the old Carolina Road in Loudoun County, Virginia which was called “Rogue’s Road”. It was along this section of the road where highwaymen committed bold robberies. A particularly noted highwayman of the day was Captain Harper who regularly patrolled it and terrorized all those who lived nearby. Women, afraid of this dashing and bold highwayman, dared not venture out alone.
