Summary
Papers, 1978, of Patricia P. Hickin (1929-) of Richmond, Virginia, consisting of a rough draft of chapters for FAIRFAX COUNTY VIRGINIA: A HISTORY, written by Hickin and other authors. Hickin's draft outlines the history of Fairfax County from 1840 to 1870, and discusses the agricultural, economic, political, and social history of the county. She details the county's agricultural revival and economic expansion, slavery, religion, and education. Hickin also discusses events in Fairfax County during the Civil War, including its occupation by the Union Army, its role in the Unionist Virginia government led by Francis Pierpont (1814-1899), and raids by Confederates led by John S. Mosby (1833-1916). Hickin concludes with Reconstruction and how it affected Fairfax County. There are also endnotes for the chapters of the draft
