From the Desk of the Editor
It is with much sadness that we submit this (last) issue of the Appalachian; and a profound sense of pride in what The Appalachian and the Appalachian Quarterly has accomplished.
It began as a composite of historical events, people, places in five states; Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. We believe that we have achieved our goal of projecting a positive image of people and places in the Appalachian mountains. The heritage that has been handed down to the present generation is a great one and one for all of us to be proud of.
Of all the books published by the Wise County Historical Society, “Between Brothers,” the biographic history of the Civil War soldiers from Wise and Dickenson Counties, Va., was instrumental in preserving not only their service records, but their photos as well. All counties in the U.S. should produce Civil War Biographical histories before all the stories and photos are gone.
