The Border Settlers of Northwestern Virginia from 1768 to 1795: Embracing the Life of Jesse Hughes and Other Noted Scouts of the Great Woods of the Trans-Allegheny. Lucullus Virgil McWhorter. Paperback, (1915), 2016, Appendices, Notes, 520 pp.
In compiling this work the author, Lucullus McWhorter, focused on many before unpublished records, history and traditions of the pioneers of the most interesting region of our entire western border. Nowhere in the conquest of the New World was there a territory so fraught with dramatic tragedy, personal prowess and adventure, as the Trans-Allegheny. For more than twenty years, which included the Revolutionary struggle, the Indians and white pioneers were locked in a deadly, cruel, fierce and unrelenting conflict for control of this wild and beautiful region. The Border Settlers of Northwestern Virginia from 1768 to 1795 provides the reader with invaluable details and material including individual biographies, notes, appendices, reports, letters, Draper correspondence and contributions, and more.
