It is regrettable, however, that great difficulties usually embarrass such a narrative- for a people in the process of rapid development oftener than otherwise permit the most essential facts in their history to drift into the limbo of the lost.

And in addition to this common neglect, there has come upon the people of this county a civil war, destroying her most valuable public and private records.But the author has made great compensation for the loss of so much original information by the diligence of his research and the faithful arrangement of his findings.

His pages unfold before our eyes the pioneer settlement of this territory- its subsequent formation into the political division known as a county- the orderly development of this people under the law, customs, religion, and social life of a real English community- the names of many individuals and families who have added substance, culture, dignity, and luster to a brave and refined people- the arrest and almost overthrow of this civilization by a disastrous war- and the subsequent resumption of communal life under radically changed social and economic conditions.This narrative will be of grateful and affectionate interest to the sons and daughters of this noble old county, and to Virginians everywhere- and, in after years, to those seeking information for a larger history of our race on these new shores.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
