Synopsis

Beginning with the early interactions between Native Americans and European explorers and settlers, this history traces three and a half centuries of change in Fauquier County, Virginia. Commissioned by the Fauquier Historical Society to commemorate the county's 250th anniversary, this engrossing narrative tells the story of the men and women, black and white, who built the region's farms, plantations, schools, and churches. Individual biographies are interwoven with a social, political, and military history of the American Revolution and Civil War, allowing crucial events in the county's history to come alive. This book also explores Fauquier's depressed economy after the Civil War and shows how the area's location and natural beauty drew wealthy outsiders to purchase estates in the early part of the twentieth century. After midcentury, the enormous expansion of the Washington suburbs ignited a heated and ongoing debate over the county's position on growth and development. Related here is the fascinating story of a historically significant county. The volume has more than two hundred illustrations, some displaying the county's stunning beauty, which enhance the book throughout.
