MERCER AS ITS CITIZENS REMEMBER IT: 1800-1917. 1999 by James E. Mennell. The author's foreword explains it all: "...I discovered a valuable body of writing concerning the early days of Mercer. This material was the personal, often eye-witness memories describing the early days of Mercer printed in the MERCER DISPATCH in the years from 1924 to about 1950. This sudden surge of published recollections occurred when...the older generation realized that their experiences, the pioneer experience, would be lost to history unless some way were found to record their memories...The resulting newspaper memories of the old timers, collected in this book, offer a history of Mercer which surpasses both the old county histories in the immediacy and personal flavor that personal reminiscences bring to history. Everything is recorded as the eyewitness felt and saw it happen..." Indexed. 208 pages, 8½ x 11 hard cover
