Kings Mountain Historical Museum is pleased to announce that the Civil War diary of William Andrew Mauney has been digitized and published online through the NC Digital Heritage Center. The diary can be viewed by visiting:  http://www.digitalnc.org/institutions/kings-mountain-historical-museum/

To celebrate the publication of this unique primary source material, historian and author Lawrence Lohr will present a program about his book, The Mauney Brothers’ Civil War.  The book chronicles the Civil War experiences of the Mauney brothers, Jacob, Andrew, and Peter.  The war would claim the life of one of the brothers; the other two would go on to have a major role in the establishment of the City of Kings Mountain and the area’s industries.  The book includes photographs and transcriptions of original source materials, including the W.A. Mauney diary.
