William Howard Armstrong was born September 14, 1914, near Lexington, Virginia.
He was raised on a farm in the lovely, history-steeped Shenandoah valley, and the descriptions of southern life in his most famous novel, Sounder, reflect his Christian upbringing in the rural South.
The strong individuals that play major roles in Armstrong's fiction can be traced back to the history of his neighborhood; Stonewall Jackson, the famous steel-willed Confederate general killed in the Civil War, had taught Sunday school at the same church Armstrong attended as a boy.
