Home Reminiscences of John Randolph of Roanoke
The title page of Powhatan Bouldin's Home Reminiscences of John Randolph of Roanoke (1878) features an engraving of a pair of men meeting in front of rustic cabins. The book details the life and character of John Randolph, a distinguished planter and politician from Roanoke Plantation in Charlotte County. The author drew on the memories of those who knew Randolph, among them Bouldin's own father, James W. Bouldin, who served in the U.S. House of Representatives.
