About this title

Synopsis:

This informative local history, originally published in two separate volumes between 1903 and 1904, is now available in an unabridged single-volume edition. The text is divided into a "narrative" section, providing a general overview of Mecklenburg County's history, and the appendix, which offers a more detailed look at a number of significant events that occurred in the county as well as a considerable body of genealogical data. Chapters cover a broad range of subjects of historical interest, illustrating the development of the county from its initial settlement through the twentieth century, including: "Indians of this Section," "Early Settlers," "Industries and Customs," "Beginning of Charlotte," "Rifle Factory in Charlotte," "The Revolution," "The Battle of Ramsour's Mill," "The Battle of King's Mountain," "Education before 1800," "Introduction of the Cotton Industry," "Slavery, Politics and Secession," "The Civil War," "Federal Officers and Troops in Charlotte," "The First Decade Without Slavery," "Road Building," and "Development of Manufactures." A chapter is devoted to biographical sketches of three notable Mecklenburg County residents3/4Presidents Andrew Jackson and James K. Polk, and Senator Zebulon Baird Vance. The Appendix serves primarily to supplement the "Narrative" section, providing additional information and expanded historical background on a number of topics. This section also contains extensive lists of names, noting Mecklenburg citizens who served in the General Assembly, five companies of soldiers in the War of 1812, twenty-one companies of Confederate soldiers, volunteers in the Mexican War, Spanish-American War veterans, Mayors of Charlotte and ministers. This edition is profusely illustrated and the original indices for each section have been retained.
