First edition signed by the author on title page, John H. Moore. The focus of this volume is on the people of Albemarle County over a two hundred and fifty year history. The study is divided into parts by "turning points" in local life-1727m 1820, 1888, and 1945. (from cover flap) After almost 90 years, 25 books, numerous articles and millions of words, Columbia historian John Hammond Moore sums up any advice he might have for others this way:“Keep going.”For decades, this historian/journalist/scholar has done just that: Kept traveling. Researching. Interviewing. Editing. Teaching. Writing. He’s delved into a gazillion topics from Confederate food to German prisoners of war in America during World War II, to lynchings in South Carolina to a pre-Hollywood biography of 1940s era movie star Errol Flynn. “John is so thorough, so careful in his writing – he’s made major contributions to our understanding of South Carolina history,” says Allen Stokes, who for 25 years was director of the University of South Carolina’s Caroliniana Library, the state’s major university history repository.; ; Signed by Author
