"The History of Rockbridge County, Virginia" gives the reader first-hand knowledge of the the lives of our forefathers by providing minute detail of their day-to-day living; Indian raids; fighting for independence from England; the Confederate War (those men and boys who served, how they died and where); and the Great World War. The author does a superb job of describing the landscape of Rockbridge County, the people and their homes, how they were taxed, the slaves that were brought from England for sale in the Americas. Extremely interesting read. I would recommend this book to all high school students giving an excellent background on how this United States was founded.
page 493 of my copy of Morton contains a listing of persons living in Rockbridge County, along with their family relations, and family events (births, marriages, etc). I notice no commentary or observations made by the author that I would normally see as inappropriate, per the previous reviewer.
