The Old Buncombe County Genealogical Society will present "Brother Against Brother - The Family of William and Isabella Redmon Peek in the Civil War" by Dan Slagle on April 24, 2010 at 2 PM in the society library at 128 Bingham Road, Suite 700. While dealing with one individual family's divided loyalties, the program emphasizes the strife and trauma experienced by numerous mountain families during this war. Mr. Slagle is very knowledgeable on the Civil War in the mountain counties, particularly Madison and Buncombe Counties, and the very different way that the mountain people experienced the war as opposed to those who lived in other areas. He is very active in genealogical circles, serving terms as president and vice president of the Madison County Genealogical Society. The public is invited and welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served. There is no charge for the meeting/program. For more information call 828-253-1894 or e-mail email@example.com.
