Undeniably the most important work ever undertaken on Southside Virginia, and the standard history of Lunenburg County, this noble work identifies the early pioneers and settlers of the territory; examines its political, social and economic development; surveys the early churches, courts and military establishment; argues the case of slavery, secession and the Civil War; and traces approximately 20,000 Southside residents both in original records and in separately prepared genealogies.
