More than 2, 000 entries reflect all areas of the Commonwealth and span the time from prehistoric settlement to today's headlines, recording Kentucky's achievements in art, architecture, business, education, politics, religion, science and sports. Biographical essays on the state's major political figures and descriptions of each county and county seat highlight this volume. A handy, informative reference for both the researcher and casual reader.BIBLIOGRAPHIC ESSAY Townsend, John Wilson. Kentucky in American Letters, vols. 1 and 2. Cedar Rapids, Iowa: Torch ...
