Seeing historic Alabama : fifteen guided tours by Virginia Van der Veer Hamilton( )

9 editions published between 1982 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Useful. That word describes this book. Don't drive anywhere in this state without taking along this useful, handy guide. Originally published in 1982, Professor Hamilton's much acclaimed Seeing Historic Alabama: Fifteen Guided Tours was enthusiastically received around the state. Reviewers throughout Alabama praised her work, her artist's eye for landscape and architecture, as well as her "historian's devotion to fact and motorist's appreciation for specific directions." This praise extended beyond the state lines to publications in the greater Southeast, which recommend the volume to readers planning travel to or through Alabama. Hamilton and Matte's thoroughly revised and updated edition of Seeing Historic Alabama introduces readers to the history of Alabama by way of visits to the buildings and sites where historic events took place, from prehistoric time to the present. Its aim is to appeal to a wide range of readers and travelers--natives and residents of Alabama, students of all ages, newcomers to the state, and tourists. This guide offers tours arranged in geographical segments that can be taken in a few hours, in a day trip, or over the course of several days. A handy guide to keep at ready in the glove compartment for easy reference wherever you travel

Looking for Clark Gable and other 20th-century pursuits : collected writings by Virginia Van der Veer Hamilton( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From "girl reporter" to professor of history, Virginia Van der Veer Hamilton has witnessed some of the major events of the 20th century. Her stories of growing up during the Depression and coming of age during World War II evoke warm memories of another time - a time of innocence, a time when people dressed up to go riding in a car, a time when the whole town danced in the streets until midnight to celebrate the return of some soldiers ... a time when two young girls from Birmingham could safely take a train to Miami to catch a glimpse of a national hero, Clark Gable. From Birmingham to Washington, D.C., and back to Birmingham again, Hamilton's essays allow us to travel with her and relive some of the major events and themes of our times: the nation's reaction to the death of FDR, the reminiscences of Hosea Williams on the "Bloody Sunday" march in Selma, the struggle by women to enter male-dominated professions, and the views of senior citizens and others toward the idea of "retirement."
