Part of the Confederate detachment that murdered the 13 people of Shelton Laurel Massacre. Cherokee attachment.
I'll pick it up again tonight and post back about the chapter on this event.
I’m not so certain that Thomas’ Cherokees participated in the Shelton Laurel Massacre, will advise after digging back into the book.
Sorry for the delay in getting back to this thread after checking Bushwhackers for correlation.
The Shelton Laurel Massacre was done by the NC 64th regiment;
Thomas’ Cherokees were the NC 69th regiment and were not involved.
