Volume VIII

Out of Print

Civil War enthusiasts have long awaited the day when Lloyd Bailey’s monumental series, Heritage of the Toe River Valley, would cover the local story of the glorious and tragic events of that epic struggle.

It was first envisioned that the entirety of the account would fit into a single volume. It soon became clear that it would consume two, and then three, books.

Volume VIII is the first of three books devoted to this topic.
