Ann B. Miller
The road history projects undertaken by the Virginia Transportation Research Council establish the feasibility of studies of early road networks and their use in the environmental review process. These projects, by gathering and publishing the early road orders of the vast parent counties, also lay the foundation for additional research by local groups over a broad area of Virginia This volume marks the twenty-third entry in the Historic Roads of Virginia series, first initiated by the Virginia Transportation Research Council (then the Virginia Highway & Transportation Research Council) in 1973. It is a cooperative project with the Shenandoah University Department of History. Frederick County Road Orders 1743-1772 expands the coverage of early Shenandoah Valley transportation records begun in the previously-published Orange County Road Orders 1734-1749 and Augusta County Road Orders 1745-1769.
