This great work covers Augusta County, Virginia from the years of 1726 to 1871. From the Indian wars to the Civil War and everything in between, any historian interested in Augusta county or American history will not be disappointed. At one time Augusta County was the largest county on the continent, extending to the Mississippi River and Great Lakes. It was the local Militia, the Augusta Grays, who made settlement safe in the great Ohio Valley and subsequent Ohio County and Kentucky County of Virginia. This title was first published in 1886.
