Journey Through Hallowed Ground: Birthplace of the American Ideal

A National Geographic publication  

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 first chapter in America's long, westward movement. The Piedmont region, 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.

Along the 180-mile stretch from Gettysburg to Monticello – designated by Congress as the official "birthplace of America” – intriguing details of our nation’s past emerge from every town. This beautiful book, Journey Through Hallowed Ground: Birthplace of the American Ideal , spotlights key places and personalities on the route and reveals insiders’ stories of early America.

Price includes $6.95 flat rate shipping and handling.
