Download and read online West Virginia in PDF and EPUB " An essential resource for scholars, students, and all lovers of the Mountaineer State. From bloody skirmishes with Indians on the early frontier to the Logan County mine war, the story of West Virginia is punctuated with episodes as colorful and rugged as the mountains that dominate its landscape. In this first modern comprehensive history, Otis Rice and Stephen Brown balance these episodes of mountaineer individualism against the complexities of industrial development and the growth of social institutions, analyzing the events and personalities that have shaped the state. To create this history, the authors weave together many strands from the past and present. Included among these are geological and geographical features; the prehistoric inhabitants; exploration and settlement; relations with the Indians; the land systems and patterns of ownership; the Civil War and the formation of the state from the western counties of Virginia; the legacy of Reconstruction; politics and government; industrial development; labor problems and advances; and cultural aspects such as folkways, education, religion, and national and ethnic influences. For this second edition, the authors have added a new chapter, bringing the original material up to date and carrying the West Virginia story through the presidential election of 1992. Otis K. Rice is professor emeritus of history and Stephen W. Brown is professor of history at West Virginia Institute of Technology.

Download and read online West Virginia A History States and the Nation in PDF and EPUB John Alexander Williams's West Virginia: A History is widely considered one of the finest books ever written about the state. In his clear, eminently readable style, Williams organizes the tangled strands of West Virginia's past around a few dramatic events—the battle of Point Pleasant, John Brown's insurrection in Harper's Ferry, the Paint Creek labor movement, the Hawk's Nest and Buffalo Creek disasters, and more. Williams uses these pivotal events as introductions to the larger issues of statehood, Civil War, unionism, and industrialization. Along the way, Williams conveys a true feel for the lives of common West Virginians, the personalities of the state's memorable characters, and the powerful influence of the land itself on its own history.

Anthony Carroll, a sailor of the British Navy, patented land on Deckers Creek in 1789, but is not known to have himself lived in Preston. James, his only son, and grandfather of the subject of this sketch, settled on a farm one mile north of Kingwood in 1790 or 92, the date apparently being that of his marriage. James H. Carroll was a son of Hon. William Carroll, who was a member of the Virginia Legislature in 1834, 35, 36, 39 and 40. He was born in Preston county, September 2, 1820, and died at his residence Thursday evening about 6 o'clock November 20, 1890. His funeral was attended by a large crowd of friends and relatives. The Kingwood Bar was present in a body as pall bearers. Mr. Carroll received a good common school education, and in the fall of 1841, he received an appointment from the Government at the Sac and Fox Indian Agency and spent the winter in Iowa. He taught school, was appointed postmaster in Kingwood in 1843, and in 1849 was appointed clerk in the post office at Wheeling under George W. Clutter, post master. He was elected Clerk of the Circuit Court of his county in 185i2, and was retained in that office until 1863, when he resumed the practice of law. In 1846 he raised a company for the Mexican War, but the State's quota was full and the Company's service was not required. He studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1845. In 1852, at an election in May, Gideon D. Camden was elected Judge of this Circuit and lawyer Carroll Clerk of the Court, beating John P. Byrne by one vote. He was re-elected in 1858. In 1870 Mr. Carroll embarked in the newspaper business and founded the Preston County Herald. In 1877 Henry Clay Hyde having assumed control changed it into the West Virginia Argus. Mr....
