Not just home to Old Salem and tobacco tycoons, Winston-Salem has more stories to tell. Author Michael Bricker chronicles the history of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, in this interesting and accessible account that spans from the development of Moravian Salem and industrial Winston to the modern day. Conventional versions of Winston-Salem's past tend to focus on the city's famed public figures and wealthy businessmen, but this book also uncovers stories of the workers who built the tobacco and textile industries that have made this city what it is today. With an informative and entertaining approach, Bricker also discusses the effects of the Civil War, the Industrial Revolution, Prohibition, the Great Depression and the cold war upon the Twin City. This history is a must-read for all those fortunate enough to call Winston-Salem home.
