History of the Early Settlement and Indian Wars of West Virginia
History of the Early Settlement and Indian Wars is an account of the various expeditions in the west, previous to 1795. The early history of the west is full of most lively interest to readers, both at home and abroad; and that which relates to Western Virginia and its borders is so in an especial degree. Here it was that Washington received those severe lessons in war which prepared him for the great achievements he so gloriously performed in after life, and here was struck the first great blow in the struggle for American Independence. One of the better early histories of what is now West Virginia. (One of the Big Four--Chronicles of Border Warfare, Border Settlers, Notes on the Early Settlement.) Illustrated by numerous engravings.
