Greetings folks! Though I would share with you this event that I am participating in this Tuesday.
Do you have an ancestor who served in the Confederate or Union army? Want to know what happened on Jack’s Creek or in Burnsville during the War of Northern Aggression? What did the men who marched away in 1861 and 1862 do? Were they at Gettysburg? Chickamauga? Bentonville? Appomattox? Join a group of local historians on Tuesday, September 4, at 6:30 pm, at the Yancey County Public Library Annex as we discuss the both Yancey County and the War for Southern Independence, and the role that Yancey County men played in many far off places. This event is free, and the public is invited to attend. Please bring a friend and all of those questions about the Civil War that you never knew whom to ask. For more information, please contact Michael Ledford at (828) 682-9151.
