First and Last…Brownsburg’s Civil War Story

The story of a brave, small, and tightly knit community located twenty miles from Lexington, Virginia…a community that experienced an ample share of calamity and pain of war. Brownsburg, Virginia, which, despite initial doubts regarding the wisdom of secession, loyally responded to Virginia’s call when war erupted and resisted the Union invasion that came to its very doorsteps in 1864. Read this carefully researched and, until now, largely unknown story of this riveting account filled with drama, loyalty, and tragedy. PLEASE PURCHASE SHIPPING BELOW. Thank you.
