Burke, VA, birthplace of...

This is a website for Burke, VA. It has basic city information, housing data, political climate, etc.

Right under the tornado activity information and before the hospital listings is a section that lists "Birthplace of..." You would think they'd list some pretty notable births, right? Especially as it's so close to our nation's capital one would think there were many high-profile people born there!

Well, this is a quote directly from the site: "Chris Stratton - College basketball player (William & Mary Tribe)"


I think it's awesome that he's listed there! Burke certainly is his hometown, where he went to high school and spent a lot of time growing up. I'm certainly not going to be the one to correct them though, as Chris wasn't even born in this country, let alone Burke :)
