This looks like a great place to share and learn! I grew up in Madison County, NC (home of the "Shelton Laurel massacre"), and have been digging deep into that story for a long time. Its amazing how many different stories are out there. Some can be verified and documented - most cannot. We'll never know the full truth of that event, but I'm always looking for new information.

Welcome. A number of my Confederate ancestors / relatives were from the western NC mountain counties, (Wilkes, Alexander, & Caldwell). The war in the "upper south", (east Tennessee, western NC. eastern Kentucky, and s.w.Virginia) was certainly a nasty business.
