Fall 2007

John Randolph and the Field of Honor
by John d’Entremont
To quote the author: “Once we hack our way through all the distracting bizarreness and peculiarities of the man, we find a core that still radiates resonance and the power to haunt.”

David Ross and the Oxford Iron Works: A Study of Industrial Slavery in the Early Nineteenth-Century South
by Charles B. Dew
Don’t be put off by the dry-sounding title. Dew presents an eye-opening human drama. This glimpse into the lives of Abram, Patsey, Little Fanny, Solomon, Jenny, and Carpenter George creates a powerful, humbling, lasting impression. 

The History of Riverside Park
by Heidi James
If you think you know something about the history of Riverside Park, just wait. James’s detailed account of the park’s ups and downs is insightful, instructive, and inspiring.

“Hang-Out” Places: Lynchburg, Virginia, in the 1950s
by Gene W. Tomlin
A trip down memory lane turns into a walk on the wild side as the author revisits his “bad boy” roots. This is not your father’s tour of historic sites. Grab your fake I.D. and let’s go.
