I’ve got some new books over the past few days to add to my genealogy/history library. As my interest in genealogy has given me a new zeal for history information in general, I love to look for historical books. We are visiting my parents in Greensboro, NC and since I did live here for years growing up as a child, I’m going to also start reading to familiarize myself with some of the history of Greensboro. My new books include:
- Hairston, Otis L. Greensboro, North Carolina. Black America series. Charleston, SC: Arcadia Pub, 2003.
- Chafe, William Henry. Civilities and Civil Rights Greensboro, North Carolina, and the Black Struggle for Freedom. New York: Oxford University Press, 1980.
- Hairston, Otis L. Picturing Greensboro, North Carolina Four Decades of African American Community. Charleston, SC: History Press, 2007.
- Powell, William Stevens. North Carolina A History. Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 1988.
- Jones, H. G., K. Randell Jones, and Caitlin D. Jones. Scoundrels, Rogues, and Heroes of the Old North State. Charleston, SC: History Press, 2004.
- Clayton, Thomas H., and Sydney Nathans. Close to the Land The Way We Lived in North Carolina, 1820-1870. Chapel Hill: Published for the North Carolina Dept. of Cultural Resources by the University of North Carolina Press, 1983.
