Abstract:
In Shelton Laurel Valley in Madison County, which was a Unionist stronghold, thirteen men and boys suspected of Unionism were killed by Confederate soldiers on or about January 18, 1863. The controversial event outraged Governor Zebulon Vance. While the massacre destroyed the career of one of the perpetrators, the one who ordered the executions was never brought to justice.

Abstract:
Myers recounts the history of Badin, located in Stanly County. It began with an English engineer's idea to build dams on the Yadkin River to generate power. Seven years later the project went bankrupt, and the French took over. When WWI broke out, the French went home to fight. ALCOA bought the project and ran it for the next one hundred years, becoming Badin's major employer with its aluminum plant. The plant closed in 2010, but the four dams continue to generate power for the area.
