No time period in history had more impact on Jefferson County citizens than the Civil War years. For some, the war crashed through their walls with deafening terror. For others, it led to freedom and education. And whether by choice or not, Jefferson Countians entered the war as Virginians and left it as West Virginians.
Author Doug Perks tells the story of this tumultuous time with insight and a depth of historical research in his new book, “The Civil War Years in Jefferson County, Virginia.”
