Title: August updates

I altered the Bankhead towns for Virginia as I do research using the 1922 Guide. My original source, the 1922-23 Rand McNally auto club map for the southeast, does not actually label the Bankhead between Washington and Oxford. I just assumed it followed the path of all the other auto trails. Perhaps soon after 1922 it did. However, I'm trying to record the earliest route. One thing I can say, the Bankhead Highway was very often not on present day US 1. It is from Richmond to Petersburg, but elsewhere it follows its own route through the country.
