“A Prominent Place”: Winchester’s 275 Years in 50 Artifacts

Artifacts provide not only tangible links to the past, but offer a medium through which history’s many complexities can be explored and understood.

“A Prominent Place”: Winchester’s 275 Years in 50 Artifacts, an anthology of 50 essays co-edited by Jonathan A. Noyalas, M.A. ’01, director of the McCormick Civil War Institute, will be released with a special event at 6:30 p.m. in Henkel Hall, Hester Auditorium. The book, a joint project between Shenandoah University and the Winchester-Frederick County Historical Society to commemorate Winchester’s 275th anniversary, features essays authored by SU history majors and alumni. Photography for the book was done by history major Jessica Kronenwetter ’20. The book release event will include a panel with selected authors, moderated by Noyalas, and an opportunity to purchase copies of the book. For more information, please contact Jonathan Noyalas at jnoyalas01@su.edu.
