Separate Place

Overview

The origins of Clarke County, Virginia go back more than 250 years to the men and women who first settled in Shenandoah Valley and left their imprint upon the land. When, in the early 1830s, the people in one portion of old Frederick County moved to establish their own county, they were seeking to maintain the way of life they had inherited from this earlier generation. At the same time, they were acting in concert with contemporary forces that had a statewide, and in some ways national, significance. The origins...

Overview

The origins of Clarke County, Virginia go back more than 250 years to the men and women who first settled in Shenandoah Valley and left their imprint upon the land. When, in the early 1830s, the people in one portion of old Frederick County moved to establish their own county, they were seeking to maintain the way of life they had inherited from this earlier generation. At the same time, they were acting in concert with contemporary forces that had a statewide, and in some ways national, significance. The origins of Clarke County—how it came to be, and why—are examined here for the first time. Warren R. Hofstra not only tells the story of the people who made Clarke County a separate place but also puts the movement for its formation in the context of Virginia and U.S. politics. It is a story fascinating in detail and rich in implication, for the issues that strained old Frederick to the breaking point—local control vs. an expanded federal government, conformity vs. pluralism, agrarian values vs. commercial pursuits—are still featured in the political debates today both regionally and nationally.

Editorial Reviews

Gregory H. Nobles
In this precise and perceptive portrait of Clarke County, Hofstra shows how this part of Virginia that lay suspended between Pennsylvania and Tidewater Virginia was in reality a world of its own. Above all, Hofstra's ability to locate this 'separate place' within the larger Atlantic world makes this book a classic work of regional history.
Robert D. Mitchell
I am so pleased to learn that this little gem of a book will be made available to a wider audience. Just as we have learned that all twentieth-century suburbs are not alike, so we can appreciate that all eighteenth-century frontiers were not alike either. Hofstra's study of the most Anglicized region on the Shenandoah Valley frontier is an example of community history at its best.
