Hallowed Ground: Preserving America's Heritage

In the mid-seventeenth century, settlers from England and from Virginia's coastal plains began pushing beyond the fall line and into the Piedmont region of the Blue Ridge. This was the initial chapter in America's long, westward movement. The Piedmont, home to Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, and John Marshall, nurtured many of the architects of our revolution and Constitution. Many of the bloodiest and most critical battles of the Civil War were fought in the region.

Thus, this land is truly "hallowed ground" for all who treasure our nation's past. This wonderful work by historian Rudy Abramson, with photographs by National Geographic photographer Kenneth Garrett and acclaimed photographer Jack Kotz, follows the history of the Old Carolina Road in Virginia from the early rivalries of Native American tribes, to the settlement of the region by our Founding Fathers, to the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. With insights from national historians and Pulitzer Prize winning writers, and illustrated with stunning photographs, this book provides a vital insight into the sheer magnificence of the landscape Where America Happened.

Hardcover, 192 pages, color , 12" x 9".

By Rudy Abramson (Author), Kenneth Garrett and Jack Kotz (Photographers)
