About this title

Synopsis:

Formed in 1790, Patrick County is named for the Commonwealth of Virginia’s first governor, Patrick Henry, who lived in neighboring Henry County. Located along the border of North Carolina where the Blue Ridge Mountains of the Appalachian Range cross the state line, the “Free State of Patrick” is half piedmont and half mountain plateau. This dividing geographic feature is reflected in the mountain people of Scots-Irish and German descent along with English living below the mountain heights. This divergent population produced tobacco magnate R. J. Reynolds; Civil War general J. E. B. Stuart; Virginia governor Gerald Baliles; Virginia’s highest-elected female, former attorney general Mary Sue Terry; and World Series pitcher Brad Clontz.

About the Author:

Thomas D. Perry grew up in Patrick County’s most historic community of Ararat. He attended Patrick County High School and, in 1983, graduated from Virginia Tech. Perry founded the J. E. B. Stuart Birthplace Preservation Trust, Inc., in 1990. The nonprofit organization has preserved 75 acres of the Stuart property, including the house site where James Ewell Brown Stuart was born on February 6, 1833. Tom is the author of Ascent to Glory: The Genealogy of J. E. B. Stuart; The Free State of Patrick: Patrick County, Virginia, in the Civil War; and Stuart’s Birthplace: The History of the Laurel Hill Farm. Perry produces a monthly e-mail newsletter about regional history from his Web site, www.freestateofpatrick.com.
