This book is the result of six months of careful research and documentation. As I say in the preface: American humorist Will Rogers once quipped: ďItís not what you donít know that hurts you; itís what you do know that ainít so.Ē A failure to clearly annotate historical research with primary sources perpetuates speculation, misinterpretations and poor scholarship. The reader will find citations provided for most of the entries. Future historians deserve to know my sources, especially when that information relates to junctures of circumstances in the record of events. Enjoy a timeline of achievements. I hope this book encourages other historians to tackle local histories with a renewed vigor. Too much of hometown America is being lost to the effects of anecdotal fog.
