Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

HISTORICAL FICTION AWARD FOR "A PASSEL OF HATE"

The Military Writers Society of America (MWSA) awarded a Silver Medal to my historical novel “A Passel of Hate” at the Society’s annual awards dinner in Dayton, Ohio. MWSA medal awards are judged by a panel of peers and based on various factors including content, style, visual appearance, and technical use of language.

“A Passel of Hate” is my first novel and describes the events in North and South Carolina leading up to and including the Battle of Kings Mountain. The focus of the fact-based book is on the emotional experiences of a family with three sons fighting for the king and two serving with the Liberty Men.

Military Writers Society of America is an association of more than a thousand authors, poets, and artists, drawn together by the common bond of military service. Most of our members are active duty military, retirees, or military veterans. A few are lifelong civilians who have chosen to honor our military through their writings or their art. The organization helps veterans, their families, and historians record history and the complexities of military life―and encourages writing and other creative endeavors as therapy for the stresses of our special circumstances. Its focus is on using these works to educate the general public, students, and the military community.

Celia -

Very little is known about the skirmish at Cane Creek, except for its location somewhere on Cane Creek near the South Mountain gap and the number of casualties.  This is one of the areas in my book where I had to use my imagination.  Aaron Deveny was captured there and (according to historian Lyman Draper in "Kings Mountain and its Heroes") his wife did go crying to Ferguson for his release.  Captain Deveny was released on parole to his wife.  I did a genealogical study to determine the  number and ages of his children.

Congratulations--quite an honor from "those who know whereof you write"--which I don't, but I'm reading "A Passel..." now and have to ask: did the reason for the  first shot at the Deveny ambush site (p. 193) really happen?? I was all set for...anything but that. With your tremendous amount of research, you have made that era come alive.

Congratulations, Joe. Well-deserved.
