Great guide for resident of area  Feb 8, 2008
I saw this book at Oatlands Plantation during the holidays. I think it's a great guide for someone just visiting the area or someone who lives in our historical state.
 
Journey Through Hallowed Ground: A Travel Guide of Heritage Sites from Gettysburg to Monticello  Mar 8, 2007
This is not your usual travel book. No five-star hotels. No "Night-Life" section. What it is, is a practical guide to exploring one of most interesting and historic stretches of road in this country. It is a guidebook inspired by the Journey Through Hallowed Ground Partnership. This group describes itself in its website as follows: "The Journey Through Hallowed Ground Partnership is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising national awareness of the unparalleled history in the region, which generally follows the Old Carolina Road (Rt. 15/231) from Gettysburg, through Maryland, to Monticello in Albemarle County, VA. From its communities, farms, businesses and heritage sites, we have an opportunity to celebrate and preserve this vital fabric of America which stands today in the historic, scenic and natural beauty of this region."

The guide is a combination of basic history, introductions to historic sites and other points of interest, and recommendations of places to stay and to eat along the way. It provides the information needed to spend some time poking around one of the most fascinating sections of the country.



 
In a crazy world -- a visit to America's best historic places  Nov 7, 2006
The Old Carolina Road (US Route 15) has more history along it than almost any region in the US, and this great travel guide through its words, photos, and maps takes the visitor back into that honored history and out again into the thriving towns and villages that anchor it. The book is a thorough guide to all the exciting historic sites, natural beauty, friendly people,and great places to eat and shop from Gettysburg to Monticello.
