The Virginia Peanut Story tells the rise and fall of the dominance of the Virginia/Carolina peanut industry. Aided by returning Union soldiers after the Civil War, and railroads, the peanut helped give rise to the golden age of agriculture. George Washington Carver & Amedeo Obici are both featured, as well as culinary historians Michael Twitty and Andrew Smith.
