Description - Remembering Lynchburg and Central Virginia by Darrell Laurant
In the heart of central Virginia lies the historic city of Lynchburg. Surrounded by historic towns such as Appomattox, Amherst and Bedford, Lynchburg is steeped in history and has been both home and hideaway for many famous people during its history. Remembering Lynchburg and Central Virginia a collection of writings by local writer and journalist Darrell Laurant unearths the various layers of history that have shaped Lynchburg and the surrounding area. From the shores and waters of the James River, which runs through Lynchburg, to Thomas Jefferson, who was a frequent visitor in Lynchburg and neighboring Bedford County, the history of the Lynchburg area speaks volumes to the inquisitive visitor or lifelong resident alike. With an eye for history and a journalistic touch, Laurant revisits the characters and events that have made this section of the Old Dominion state a treasure trove of historical tales."
