Discover where Civil War history intersects with hiking trails

The Macon County Public Library will present “Hiking Through History” with Leanna Joyner at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27, in the library’s meeting room.

The presentation will cover the history of Civil War events in the mountains of Western North Carolina, and along the Appalachian Trail. Hear stories of tenuous mountain battles, the division of families and learn where to hike through history along the Appalachian Trail.

The program is part of the Thursdays at the Library series, an eclectic mix of programs by authors, musicians, and educators on topics designed for enjoyment and learning. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
