Virginia's Western Vision: Political and Cultural Expansion on an Early American Frontier by L. Scott Philyaw

In Virginia’s Western Visions, L. Scott Philyaw examines the often tumultuous history of Virginia’s westward expansion. Land, the foundation to tobacco cultivation and slavery, obsessed early Virginians. Land acquisition was also a necessary step in dispossessing Virginia’s native inhabitants, replacing them with Europeans and Africans.
