Alexander Spotswood  was the American Colonial Governor.  He recommended that a Virginia company be established to carry on trade with the Indians.  At his urging forts were constructed along the frontier.  He organized and conducted an exploring expedition into the Shenandoah Valley (17 Aug - 20 Sep 1716).  The expedition reached the water-parting between the Atlantic and the Ohio River.  To his comrade in this expedition he presented a small golden horseshoe, engraved with "Sic juvat transcendere montes"
