Sketches of Western North Carolina Illustrating Principally the Revolutionary Period of Mecklenburg, Rowan, Lincoln and Adjoining Counties
Sketches of Western North Carolina Illustrating Principally the Revolutionary Period of Mecklenburg, Rowan, Lincoln and Adjoining Counties. Cyrus L. Hunter. (1877).

This work consists almost entirely of biographical sketches of Revolutionary War officers and soldiers from the North Carolina counties of Burke, Cabarrus, Cleveland, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Rowan, and Wilkes, with considerable information on them and extensive genealogies of their families. Hunter uses a county-by-county arrangement to portray, in toto, a history of the Revolutionary War in the western and southwestern half of the state. The chapter on Cleveland County, with its references to the American commanders at the Battle of King's Mountain, is of particular interest to students of the Revolutionary War. With an Added Index of Names.
