    These are the writings by my g-grandfather Thomas Moxley (1837-1930) of stories from his earliest life around Sparta, NC, and later when he moved about 10-15 miles east to Saddle MT. with his wife Rachel Dillard. Shortly thereafter, the Civil War began. Being pro-Union and an abolitionist made it difficult for them to live in a Confederate state. He describes harrowing encounters with Rebels, the Home Guard and Confederate Troops as he ran an underground railroad to take defecting Southern soldiers through the mountains up North into Union territory. He is eloquent in describing his life and these events in detail. There were hangings, shootings, and other sad encounters during this time. Its a "must read" for those who are looking for accounts by those who were pro-Union abolitionists living in a Confederate state during the war. The book is indexed and footnoted with researched details by the author.
