Description


Winchester, Virginia--in the heart of the northern Shenandoah Valley--is a city steeped in history. It is where George Washington came of age, where Stonewall Jackson achieved everlasting fame and where Patsy Cline found her musical talent.
This collection of articles and local color, brought together in one volume by regional writer and journalist Adrian O'Connor, reveals that the history of Winchester is not always in the recorded facts, but rather in the hearts and minds of the citizens who have made this section of Northern Virginia home.
From stories about the city's characters and institutions, to the history of sports in the area, Remembering Winchester captures not only the essence of the people who have shaped the history of Winchester, but also their impact on the Old Dominion.
