Between Reb & Yank

by Taylor M. Chamberlin and John M. Souders

Between Reb and Yank: A Civil War History of Northern Loudoun County, Virginia. $52.50 plus $5 shipping. Includes tax.

Book Details
· Paperback Dimensions: 8.5 x 11 inches
· Publisher: McFarland & Co. Inc. (February 2011) ISBN: 978-0-7864-5924-7, 8.5 x 11, 410 pp., 112 photos, 5 maps, notes, bibliography, index

Book Description

Between Reb and Yank, by esteemed local historians Taylor Chamberlin and John Souders, delves into Loudoun County’s—and Waterford’s—turbulent Civil War history along the border between North and South.

Northern Loudoun was berated by Southern newspapers and commanders for its lack of loyalty and retribution was sought against its “tory” inhabitants. On the other side, Federal soldiers were delighted by the hospitality and waving “stars and stripes” that greeted their arrival in this part of Dixie. Between Reb and Yank provides a fascinating account of the men who fought and the civilians caught between the two armies, of neighbors raising partisan outfits to oppose each other, of families split by conflicting loyalties, of prosperous farmers ruined by the conscription of their sons and confiscation of their crops, and of Quakers forced to search their consciences whether to fight, flee, or turn the other cheek. At the heart of the Union enclave and conflicting farming communities in war torn Loudoun was Waterford, whose peaceful Quakers were mired in the turmoil from the time of the May 21, 1861 anti-secession vote. It was Waterford’s miller, Samuel Means who called up the Loudoun Rangers––the only cavalry unit from Confederate Virginia that fought for the North. It was the daring Dutton sisters who published the underground pro-Union Waterford News that even reached President Lincoln’s desk. Frank Myers, White’s fiery young lieutenant, wrote a stirring history of their battalion. But he omitted much, and the authors have used his diary to recount the climactic final days of the war as well as the galling bitterness that the unreconstructed Rebel felt on returning to Waterford. Read all about these famous people in Waterford’s past, plus many more.

When Waterford and I Were Young

By John Divine with Bronwen and John Souders

When Waterford and I Were Young. $12.95 plus $3.50 shipping. Includes tax.

Book Details
• Paperback: Dimensions: 5.5 x 8.5 inches
• Publisher: Waterford Foundation (1994)
• 148 p. ISBN 0966048520, 0966048512

Book Description

From the back cover of the book:
In this his final book, beloved Northern Virginia historian John Divine looks back affectionately at the village of his youth. Waterford, Virginia-now a National Historic Landmark-was a wonderful place for a lively boy growing up in the early 1900s. The town was a yeasty blend of farmers and merchants, blacksmiths and cobblers, freed slaves and Civil War veterans, sober Quakers and village drunks. Young John knew them all and loved their stories. He shares them here-warts and all-with warmth and wit.

No one could do it better. His roots in the village extend six generations-to the mid-1700s-and John himself seemed as much at home in the Waterford of the 1820s as of the 1920s. It is in this spirit that his co-authors have completed what he began, adding historical context and rounding out his anecdotes. Taking their cue from John Divine himself, they have relied almost entirely on interviews, primary documents, and period photographs.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS: John E. Divine, a nationally recognized authority on the Civil War, died in November 1996. He was the author of several books on “The War,” including most recently “To Talk Is Treason,” a fascinating account of Waterford’s Quakers during that struggle. Associate and friend Bronwen Souders and her husband John collaborated with him on that book and this. They have lived in the Waterford area for more than 25 years in a house built by the first of John Divine’s forbears in Loudoun County.
