How did a Roanoke neighbor's secret upend North Carolina politics and why did a weeding scandal in Big Lick make front-page headlines in New York? These questions and many more are answered in this exciting volume of hidden stories and forgotten tales from the Star City. Discover why a Roanoker was found frozen in the North Atlantic and what Mother's Day crime and trial shocked the city in 1949. Meet the Black Cardinals, a semipro African American baseball team that played in the 1930s and '40s, and find out how a fistfight at Shenandoah Life helped save the company. Author Nelson Harris delves into the annals of history to uncover these marvelous and mostly unknown stories of the Star City of the South.
