Join North Carolina genealogist and former Atkins librarian Donna Gunter at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 26 in Atkins Room 125 as she presents a program on how to search your family history.
Gunter will also share her personal genealogy history as a descendant of the North Carolina Shelton family. The Shelton family is noted in Western North Carolina for the Shelton Laurel Massacre, the January 1863 execution of 13 of its members.
Confederate Officer James A. Keith led the execution of the boys and men who ranged in age from 12 to 63. The 64th North Carolina Regiment carried out the execution.
This event is part of the Beyond the Myths: The American Civil War in History and Memory and is made possible by the Chancellor's Diversity Fund.
