Montgomery County, Virginia: The First 100 Years.
Judge C. W. Crush.
Montgomery County, Va. was a "stem" county for much of the western expansion, and sets astride the great migration trails west and south. The author has transcribed original sources which elucidates the history of this county's first century through the period of the late nineteenth century. A sampling of the documentation includes personal diaries, military roles, county court records, reminiscences of past citizens of the county, and a wide range of other valuable sources. This volume is destined to be a "classic" for references to the earliest records of Montgomery and its subsequent divisions.
