Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Virginia's counties, including Spotsylvania, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Margo - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Margo) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Margo. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Margo

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Margo. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 38.1607, Longitude: -77.7245
