The Appalachian Trail may be one of the best loved hiking trails in America, but many may not realize the history embedded in the Appalachian Trail corridor. Hiking through History: Civil Wars Sites on the Appalachian Trail provides a greater understanding of the area you are hiking: from Underground Railroad sites and W.E.B. Du Bois’ birthplace in New England, to the Union occupation of present-day Hot Springs, N.C. Each site has a full-color map for a quick hike, and most have current and contemporary photographs.
From the back cover:
Leanna Joyner, who hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2013, brought experience in publications to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, where today she manages volunteer-based crew and other trail programs in Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee. As a consultant, she developed community-based programs for the ATC and researched this guide to Civil War sites along a footpath perhaps more legendary for hiking exploits than history.
Leanna Joyner. First edition, 2015.
