History of Augusta County, Virginia - J. Lewis Peyton. A fascinating, detailed history. Peyton describes, among other things, how roads were built and expanded; how numerous Presbyterian churches were formed before 1740; and how Augusta Academy (later known as Washington and Lee University) was opened in 1749. Augusta County's involvement in the Civil War, including the battles of Mt. Crawford and Piedmont, also receives substantial treatment in this volume. Officer rosters are included for the Staunton Artillery, the West Augusta Guard, and the 5th and 52nd Virginia Volunteer Infantries. Numerous original records supplement the volume. A section of the book is dedicated to genealogies, including the family of John Lewis, which is carried into the 1860s. Eighty-eight pages of genealogies follow, including the families of M'Dowell, Preston, Campbell, Stuart, Bell, Cochran, M'Cue, Crawford, Waddell, Peyton and Baldwin. (1882), reprint, 5½x8½, paper, index, 412 pp. 101-P1067 ISBN: 0788410679
