Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThe flood of 1889 has often taken center stage in the history of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, but the history of this community is greater than this tragedy. In this first installment of a two-volume set, local author Randy Whittle explores in-depth the history of this quintessential American community that has endured and prospered through the generations. Beginning with the aftermath of the 1889 flood, Whittle describes the ?key events and issues that the community's institutions and many of its leading personalities have wrestled with from the mid-1890s.? The result is an accessible and entertaining narrative that not only recounts the community history, but also the topical histories of many civic organizations, the local government and leading businesses.
