2 Staples, Charles R. The History of Pioneer Lexington, Kentucky 1779-1806
Lexington KY Lexington Co Historic Commmission 1973 Later; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Red cloth cover. Reprint of the 1939 edition by Staples. A record of Lexington during it's formative years.Lexington, consolidated with Fayette County and often denoted as Lexington-Fayette, is the second-largest city in Kentucky and the 60th-largest city in the United States. By land area, Lexington is the 28th largest city in the United States. Known as the "Horse Capital of the World," it is the heart of the state's Bluegrass region. With a mayor-alderman form of government, it is one of two cities in Kentucky designated by the state as first-class; the other is the state's largest city of Louisville. Lexington was founded by European Americans in June 1775, in what was then considered Fincastle County, Virginia, 17 years before Kentucky became a state. A party of frontiersmen, led by William McConnell, camped on the Middle Fork of Elkhorn Creek (now known as Town Branch and rerouted under Vine Street) at the site of the present-day McConnell Springs. Upon hearing of the colonists' victory in the Battles of Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775, they named their campsite Lexington. It was the first of many American places to be named after the Massachusetts town.[5] The risk of Native American attacks delayed permanent settlement for four years. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 361 pages;
