Summary

In his impassioned speech at the Virginia Secession Convention, Washington County's delegate, John A. Campbell, concluded his fiery rhetoric with a call to arms: "I don't know but that from this hour forward my way may be lighted by the blaze of civil war." Soon his sentiment was fully embraced by his previously undecided constituents. Though no major battles were fought on Washington County's soil, it became a key supply area for Confederate armies. Federal efforts to secure the coveted region resulted in targeted attempts to destroy the area's vital resources. Join Civil War historian Michael K. Shaffer as he reveals Washington County's Civil War sacrifices and heroism, both on and off the battlefield. Book jacket.
