Revolution in Virginia
Unsurpassed as a single-volume history, John E. Selby's masterpiece analyzes the political, administrative and military history of Virginia during the American Revolution. Stressing the contributions, in both men and material, that the state made to the new nation's war effort, Selby shows how Virginia's leaders responded to the need to expand the state's administration and mobilize its people for war while at the same time looking westward to the vast territory beyond the Appalachians. With a foreword by historian Don Higginbotham, this classic is a must-read for anyone interested in the origins of our nation. Paperback, 456 pages.
Revolution in Virginia, 1775-1783
