The Fight for Fairfax: A Struggle for a Great American County
The Fight for Fairfax presents the story of a group of local citizens in Fairfax County, Virginia, and their efforts over the past half-century to invent a place that would be more than simply a Washington, D.C., suburb. Told from the group's point of view, the book chronicles their vision of Fairfax and the steps they took to bring it to life. The group faced many opponents, including populist politicians and anti-growth forces, and this book examines those clashes as part of the overall story.
The Fairfax pro-development group--a zoning attorney, a university president, two defense contractors, a homebuilder and several county officials, real estate developers, and engineers--believed their work would transform Fairfax's rural landscape into what might be called the cradle of the Information Age. And indeed, Fairfax has become a vibrant economic hub that boasts of modern industries, high-paying jobs, superior public schools, a multicultural workforce, and abundant open spaces. In making the case for these architects of change, the author, who extensively researched the subject and conducted numerous interviews with key players, produces an eloquent account that must be considered by all--those who agree with and even those who question the development.
The Fight for Fairfax will appeal to a diverse audience, including local Virginia history buffs and scholars and those with an interest in business history, especially in terms of the challenges and opportunities that are often linked to growth and change.

Ford was entering a challenging time in its history when it produced its new line of Super Deluxe cars beginning in 1941. The company was branching into wartime production, especially after Pearl Harbor. Automotive innova
tion was not on the immediate engineering horizon, but there is no doubt that their styling department led the industry into the forties. One of the early highlights of that era was the 1941 Super Deluxe Woody Wagon that proved to be both an esthetic and utilitarian success.
The 1941 Ford Super Deluxe Woody offered here is a solid car that has been very well maintained throughout its life and now shows 69,000 miles on the odometer. Its shiny Maroon finish is in very good overall condition, and is a great counterpoint to the attractive blond woodwork that makes up the bulk of the body structure. The wood, including the doors and inner headliner, is in overall excellent condition as are the vinyl roof covering and glass.
Inside, the dash features Ford’s trademark instrument panel of the time, with readouts contained in a large plastic bezel spanning almost the entire width of the dash. The large steering wheel, shifter and pedals are in very good condition. Reflecting the car’s workmanlike nature are its three full-width and well-bolstered bench seats, finished in tan leather and mounted on matching tan carpets.
This wartime workhorse is powered by Ford’s legendary 221 cubic inch, 35 horsepower flathead V-8. A three-speed manual transmission feeds into a 3/4 floating 3.78 rear end, and the car rolls on period-correct BF Goodrich 6.00x16 Silvertown tires. A solid, well-maintained classic, this 1941 Ford Woody is well equipped and ready to serve as a reliable and charming driver.

The passage of time has brought with it vast alterations to the landscape of Northern Virginia and Fairfax County. Once a sleepy rural area dotted with a few small villages, it has changed into a bustling suburb that is now home to thousands of people. Throughout its history, Fairfax County has hosted presidents, been home to slave traders and been a strategic component in multiple campaigns during the Civil War.
Remembering Fairfax County, Virginia, by longtime local historian Karl Reiner, is a collection of historical vignettes that captures not only the essence of the events and people who have shaped the history of Fairfax County, but also their impact on the Old Dominion. Reiner calls upon a breadth of materials, exploring much of the forgotten heritage in the county, to provide an accessible and balanced work that is both informative and entertaining.
From the influence of presidents such as George Washington to forgotten battles during the Civil War, this collection chronicles the history of Fairfax County during some of the most influential periods in American history.
