Chapters on roads, railroads, river navigation, air service, the Civil War and other wars, education, churches and religion, agriculture, coal mining, barbecue tradition, fine arts and cultural development, social developments, and women's lives are included. A chronology at the beginning of the book lists 200 outstanding events in the county's history-one for each year from 1815 to 2015. Also included is an introduction by the editors and a forward by Judge Executive Al Mattingly. In addition the book features short historical sketches of the many small towns and villages within the county, including some that exist today only as names on the map.
