Inhaltsangabe: The book Secrets of Cross Keys is focused on a small area in the Shenandoah Valley in Rockingham County in Virginia, yet it is a stroy that has far-reaching interest. While it's foundation relies on facts and dates, the human element of the early pioneers reads like a novel. The recruiting of Europeans, the rush to settle the areas along The Great Wagon Road, and the burgeoning governments, both before and after the Revolutionary War, embody the basis of our Constitution. The area's first religions, specifically Presbyterian, Lutheran, and "German Reformed" churches developed along with the growing pioneer settlements. The church unions, and their histories, as well as the footpaths and roads and how they came about, is each interesting in their own right. Early settlers struggled against the raw elements of the fertile land to begin new lives in freedom from England. German immigrants' hard toil with back-breaking work helped make our great nation. The peace was shattered, when in June of 1862, the Civil War came to Cross Keys. Battles fought and lives lost and the destruction of Sheridan's Burning, all paved the way back to the peaceful United States that we know today. Several families' stories and their experiences are told. Some of the names include: Pence, Kiblinger, Haugh, Pirkey, Flory, Kemper, Lamb, Carpenter, and Zimmerman. Other family names who are mentioned include: Hite, Harry, McConnell, Strickler, Muller, Stover, Craig, Lewis, Kisling, Hindman, Harrison, Beard, Armentrout, Webb, and Keezle. Some of the families' lineages are explored as well, and will be of interest to those researching their genealogical history. History holds many secrets, some of which, to the diligent researcher, can be uncovered and brought to light, while some, no matter how hard one looks, remain?secrets of the past.
Inhaltsangabe: Woven between historical facts and dates of history, secrets of the past are revealed in an engaging story of pioneer families who lived through the Civil War battle.
