The following is a partial list of the sources I used. Most of them are not primary sources and are intended for general audiences. This book was written for children and I have made no attempt to cite sources. The book was written from the point of view of ordinary folk and refers to the effects of political and economic events rather than to the events themselves. I used a number of sources not listed here including road-side historical markers, church bulletins, grave markers and interviews with old-timers. My parents were the most useful sources of information about their generation.
