Excerpt from Inside of Dust Jacket: This is an effort to provide a chronological history of the County. Often a person interested in its history may desire to know what happened at a specific time in history. Until now there was no easy access to this type of information. Furthermore, this book provides a day-by-day account as far as possible of specific events that reveal the history in a new way.

This book is not designed for reading in a narrative fashion. Instead, it is more of a reference book or a book for browsing. No attempt was made too include a complete account of each event.
