    Again, our Hampshire250 Director, Janet Harlow, and our Hampshire250 Co-Chairperson, Roberta Munske, have done us proud with a wonderful display of the first years of Hampshire County as the French and Indian War raged around the frontier.

The display begins by giving some background on the causes of the French and Indian War, goes through the years it raged in and around Hampshire County and ends after peace returned to the frontier.

    The display devotes some space to our most famous hero, Col. George Washington. It was Col. Washington and his Virginia Regiment that had the task of protecting our settlers during this bloody conflict.

Like all good library exhibits, this one has a very wide selection of books that library patrons can check out to learn more about the French and Indian war.
