Notable People

People who have helped to make history in the Appalachia regions.

Grace Sherwood - The Last Witch Trial star
Although the trial of Grace was the last witch trial held in North America, today she is remembered and honored as a healer, herbalist, and a good woman with a kind heart.

Julia Tutwiler - Educator and Activist star
Into this time of uncertainty, turmoil, and great change was born one who would become one of Alabama's most influential citizens and an activist for education and prison reformation. Julia Strudwick Tutwiler was born in 1841.

Mary Draper Ingles - Courageous Pioneer Woman star
Mary's story is one of incredible courage, strength, and determination that is astounding enough to make one think only a woman of 'make believe' could have accomplished what she did. Yet real she was and true is her story.

Mildred Norman Ryder - Journey For Peace star
Mildred began a true pilgrimage, on foot and faith, alone and unafraid of what she might encounter. She carried with her only what could fit in her pockets and a small satchel with petitions for peace.

Molly Pitcher - Battle Of Monmouth star
As her husband was carried off the battlefield, Molly grabbed the ramrod and in the heat of battle and sun, continued to swab and load the cannon.

Nancy Ward - Beloved Woman Of the Cherokee star
One of the most important transitions the Cherokee had to make, adjusting to the Europeans and their ways, was made possible in part by Nancy Ward. She was very instrumental in helping her people to make this difficult change to their own way of life.

William Faulkner - Appalachian Writer star
William Faulkner was one of the most important writers of the Southern literature of the United States. A major common theme within this type literature focuses on the troubled history with racial issues, the American Civil War, and Reconstruction.
