The Cotton Adams Statue

Little known fact: Cotton Adams came up with the "Alphabet Travel Game" while on horseback in 1747. You start with the letter "A" and find one on a sign, cattle brand, wanted poster, carving on a tree or grave marker, say the word and then move on to the next letter. You can do this as a self-challenging competition with a given time limit or together with a traveling companion. The first one to get to the letter "Z" is the winner!
Special thanks to Cha Cha Forester for sending me this photo.
