view on google books

Unsurpassed as a single-volume history, John E. Selby’s masterpiece analyzes the political, administrative, and military history of Virginia during the American Revolution. Stressing the contributions, in both men and material, that the state made to the new nation’s war effort, Shelby shows how Virginia’s leaders responded to the need to expand the state’s administration and mobilize its people for war while at the same time looking westward to the vast territory beyond the Appalachians. Now available for the first time in paperback and with a new foreword by the historian Don Higginbotham, this classic is a must-read for anyone interested in the origins of our nation.
