Description Information

Students of Virginia's history learn much by studying such men as Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and Stonewall Jackson or such places as Jamestown, Richmond, and Appomattox. Yet the prominence of the conflicts in which these men struggled and which these places embody overshadows other men and women, other places, other moments. The story of Virginia is only half told without those other histories, and Virginia Reconsidered provides an invaluable collection of fourteen classic essays by leading scholars to fill that void.

Topics Include: Slavery and Freedom, Society and Political Culture, Domestic and Family Influences, Free Speech and the Lost Cause, Native American History, Desegregation, Suffrage Campaigns, Women in Virginia Politics, Eugenics, Slaves and the American Revolution.
