Buchbeschreibung Charles Scribner's Sons, New York & London, 1947. Hardcover. Zustand: Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. From the Preface: "This book is compiled from the letters of my grandfather and grandmother written to each other during the war and which my grandmother printed privately in 1894. That work consists of two volumes, mostly in fine print, and contains many items not of interest to the general reader. The Blackford family through its history in America has been always of a typical middle-class American family: never very famous, never obscure. It is not one of the First Families of Virginia except by marriage. The Blackfords have done their share in fighting our wars, making our laws and developing our natural resources, and, with God's help, may they continue to do so.".
