Overview


Colonization, political and religious reform, revolution and Civil War have left footprints on the varied landscape of Hanover County. Centrally located within the state, Hanovertown on the Pamunkey River missed being the capital of Virginia by a slim margin. It was at the Hanover Courthouse that Statesman Patrick Henry gave a voice to the spirit of the Revolutionary War. During the Civil War, Grant and Lee would journey through the county struggling for control of Richmond in some of the state's fiercest fighting. This volume celebrates these emblematic images of history, and also delves into the daily lives of those who have shaped Hanover County for three centuries.Through vintage photographs, diaries, and articles from the pages of the Herald Progress, the voice of Hanover since 1913, Images of America: Hanover County captures the days gone by.
