Description


Just like the tide, history flows through every corner of Old Dominion�s Hampton Roads region, and for decades it has been chronicled in the Virginian-Pilot�s column, �Our Stories.� These stories are now told by local historian
and longtime columnist Paul Clancy, who offers up this unparalleled and uninhibited collection of articles and stunning historical images. Rediscover the history behind landmarks such as Fort Monroe, Sewell�s Point and Cape Henry and take in the view from the vantage point of those
who witnessed history being made before their eyes: stories about the hurricane of �33, the old fairgrounds on the bay, the trolleys that ran to Ocean View, the semipro baseball teams that battled for glory, the harrowing and courageous
struggle for racial equality and the soldiers and sailors who went off to war. This is the real stuff of Hampton Roads history.
