A Look into Appalachia via essays by U.C. students in 1988

The Knox Historical Museum houses a copy of an anthology focusing on Appalachia that was compiled through the cooperative efforts of Union College instructor Linda Oxendine and the members of The History of Appalachia Class in the fall semester of 1988.

Essays include such topics as the origins of mountain people, Appalachian culture, White Lightning (very high proof moonshine), family feuds, coal, lumber and mining booms, famous individuals from Knox's history, such as Dr. Thomas Walker, Daniel Boone and George Rogers Clark and much more.
