There is a story that Virginians tell out-of-staters about the
pronunciation of Staunton. I don't remember the story completely, but it
goes something like this:

A soldier dressed in a Confederate uniform was found wandering behind
Confederate lines. When he was asked where he was from and he replied
STAHN-ton, he was shot on the spot.
