This new, revised and expanded edition includes 212 new markers, many of which reflect the Native-American, African-American, and social history.
A Guidebook to Virginia's Historical Markers brings together the texts of more than 1,600 official state historical markers that have been placed along Virginia's highways since 1926, including even those markers that have been removed. A grid map and three separate indexes assist the reader in locating each marker. One index is alpabetical by title, one by subject matter, and one by county and independent city.
Travelers along Virginia's highways will find this guide both useful and informative. The great legacy of Virginia's past is revealed on these markers, making this book both a handy reference and a stimulus to greater study of the history of the commonwealth.
