John Strode

This article is awaiting reformatting.

John Strode was an iron and arms manufacturer in Virginia and served in the Virginia House of Delegates (1810-1812). During the American Revolution, he managed an arms factory near Fredericksburg, and after the war, owned several mills while still working in the iron business. [[Thomas Jefferson]] often stopped at Strode's residence, Fleetwood, in Culpeper as he traveled.
