Mom in Her Writing Nook ...

She was working on the "About the Authors" section of "Echoes Across the Blue Ridge" when I captured this one morning. Though you can't see it, her coffee cup was within gentle reach that morning. Roxie is at her feet.

Swannanoa Valley Museum Hike may solve two Civil War mysteries?

For sometime it has been known that a Confederate Civil War soldier known only by the name "Carver," was killed just over the east side of Swannanoa Gap in early 1864. A 1914 newpaper article/letter by Dr. V. N. Seawell sheds astonishing new light on an old story.

A similar mystery has persisted for generations regardsing what happened to a Henderson County, NC Confederate hero by the name of John Carver. He was a member of J.E.B. Stuart's famous Confederate Cavalry. He was a soldier in Company G, 1st NC Cavalry. He was in many of the great battles of the war and suffered from many horrific wounds. He was sent home on detached service on November 30, 1863. His record indicates that he was killed while "under arrest" sometime after April 10, 1864.

I am convinced that the mysterious grave seen on the Civil War hike is the grave of Private John H. Carver of Henderson County, NC, Company G, 1st North Carolina Cavalry. An opinion is being sought from the NC Office of Archives & History. Any input on the topic is welcome.
