History Talk

Given by Ricky Cox

Thursday, November 17
6:00 to 7:00 pm
Ann H. Fisher New River Room
Radford Public Library

Everyone is welcome. No admission charge.

Abstract: As recently as sixty years ago grist, feed, and flour mills were essential and commonplace parts of the economic and social fabric of rural Southern Appalachian counties like Floyd County, VA. This illustrated presentation provides an overview of the history and technology of grain milling in our area, and features notable or typical mills and the men and women who built, ran, and finally abandoned these icons of semi-self-sufficient agrarian life.

History Talk

Wallenstein photoBest of Times, Worst of Times:
Reconstruction in the South after the Civil War

Given by Peter Wallenstein, PhD

Thursday, September 22
6:00 to 7:00 pm
Radford Public Library

Everyone is welcome to attend. No admission charge.

Death and destruction during the Civil War gave way to new possibilities — and tremendous uncertainty — in the years that followed. In particular, black southerners moved quickly away from slavery and, over the next few years and at least for a while, into citizenship and political rights. This talk will survey some of the huge changes that took place between the 1860s and the 1890s, both in Virginia and elsewhere across the South, in marriage and family, elementary and higher education, and voting and political office holding. Virginians who illustrate some of the big changes include Robert E. Lee, John Mercer Langston, Mary S. Hall, John Henry, and Woodrow Wilson. Some of these people you have no doubt heard of; come hear more about them and the others.

Peter Wallenstein is an award-winning professor of history at Virginia Tech, recognized for both his teaching and his research. His many books include Cradle of America: A History of Virginia and (for fourth-graders) Our Virginia, Past and Present.
