Dirty Water

Personal memory by Rachael Smith

1996Harpers Ferry, WV 25425, USA

A lot of people make fun of West Virginians. They have a mental image of them being dirty hillbillies. But, I used to live near Harpers Ferry. It's where the Shenandoah (Virginia's River) and the Potomac (West Virginia's river) meet and bi-sect Virginia, Maryland, and West Virginia). I could always tell which one was which because the Shenandoah was much dirtier.
