No battle or even minor skirmish took place within Fauquier’s borders during the Revolutionary War. In a quiet county, remote from the maelstrom however, the average man could view the great panorama of human conflict and decide for himself the extent of his involvement. The men who went to war from Fauquier, for the most part, did so because they believed it to be their duty. Many remained behind but contributed heavily to the cause. By accident of geography and the fortunes of war, Fauquier County was ideally situated to accomplish that purpose. This book looks at the Revolution throu... View more info

This is the history of a house, of the land on which it was built, of those who built it and lived in it, and of the circumstances that made it as we see it today. The original builder would be considered an important historical personage in his own right, were it not for the overshadowing greatness of his son. It is a house of great architectural interest. It is, in fact, two houses. The first one, built in 1773, is a rare example of a Fauquier County farmhouse of the colonial period, left virtually unaltered by succeeding generations. The second house, built in 1818, is a sophisticated templ... View more info

“There is a true story about a handsome, young Virginia, Presley Neveille O’Bannon, which involved the Barbary Coast in Africa, a 700-mile march across the sinister Barca Desert in Libya, and the strange Tripolitan War.” Thus opens this inspired text, a study of P.N. O’Bannon, a truly valiant Marine who was the first man to raise the American flag, in victory, on foreign soil. O’Bannon made his military name in the Tripolitan War campaigns of the early 1800s, in the Mediterranean. After a short but glorious military career, O’Bannon moved into politics,... View more info
