Friendliest Town on the Trail

Friendliest Town on the Trail

By Bunny Medeiros

The Appalachian Trail was opened by 1937 and by the mid-fifties a handful of people had walked its entire length. As "thru-hiking" took hold, more and more hikers were coming through Damascus, Virginia. Their adventures prompted a change in the character of the town, leading to its reputation of being "the friendliest town on the Trail". In this book you will meet some of the people from the town during that period and learn more about the five trails passing through the area.

WASHINGTON COUNTY, VIRGINIA, IN THE CIVIL WAR
by Michael K. Shaffer

Quality Paperback, 128 pp. with Over 35 Photos
ISBN 978-097247656-0

In his impassioned speech at the Virginia Secession Convention. Washington County's delegate, John A.

Soon his sentiment was fully embraced by his previously undecided constituents. Though no major battles were fought on Washington County's soil, it became a key supply area for Confederate armies. Union attempts to secure the coveted region resulted in targeted attempts to destroy the area's vital resources. Join Civil War historian Michael Shaffer as he reveals Washington County's Civil War sacrifices and heroism, both on and off the battlefield.

TALES FROM THE MOONSHINE TRADE

Softcover, 6" x 9", 240 pages
Oral histories and over 100 fine old pictures
Index of names
ISBN 978-097247656-0
Clinch Mountain Press 2011

Unlike the comic strip characters Snuffy Smith and Moonshine McSwine, moonshiners worked hard to put food on the table during the Depression. Nearly every secluded hollow in Far Southwest Virginia harbored a still where men, children, and even some women labored and watched out for the law. This was a part of their heritage, going back to a time before whiskey was taxed, and distilling was a normal part of the farmstead activities. Tales From the Moonshine Trade includes a wealth of pictures and stories from all the counties of Far Southwest Virginia, many of them humorous, and some tragic.

Item Image THEN AND NOW: WASHINGTON COUNTY
by Joe Tennis

Boasting three forks of the Holston River and a skyline of mile-high mountains, Washington County lies at the heart of the Virginia Highlands. Today, many miles of its railroad lines have become trails, and towns like Damascus, Abingdon, Mendota, Meadowview, and Glade Spring have grown from villages among wilderness. From Clinch Mountain to Konnarock, and from Three Springs to Glade Spring, "Then and Now: Washington County, Virginia" highlights the history and beauty of this mountainous land, showing images from the late 1800s to the late 1900s, contrasted with contemporary photographs of Washington County as it appears today. It is a journey of wild waters, wild wonders, side-of-the-road stories, and yes, even a few legends.

AFTER THE WAR WAS OVER: RECONSTRUCTION IN WASHINGTON COUNTY, VIRGINIA 1865-1870

Reconstruction

This essay is an examination of what happened during the Reconstruction Era in one place in the South, Washington County, Virginia. When the Civil War ended, the people struggled to reestablish their economy and cope with the frequently changing political situation. Although most white people bitterly opposed political reconstruction, they persevered and gradually accepted their new situation, rebuilt old institutions, and formed new ones. The time was not as bleak as most would imagine, at least not in this place.
