Noted Americans born within the county include Patrick Henry and Henry Clay. The county was also the site of several Civil War battles. Throughout wars and other tribulations, county residents have found ways to thrive. Today, some 100,000 people live in Hanover homes, and it's one of the fastest growing regions in Virginia.
