In "Shattered Peace," we hear about how Hazel Creek and Cades Cove were linked through families, then visit the Tipton Cabin and its history. We hear about Witt Shields, inventor, miller, farmer, and his family. At the Carter Shields cabin we hear compelling stories of him and also a stirring account of a pioneer birth in winter. On to the Muster Field, and a special chapter on the Civil War, complete with real cannon fire and an eye-witness account. We pass Gourley Field / Pond and the LeQuire Cemetery. We hear about the folks who lived on Rowan’s Creek, including the Tipton’s and LeQuire’s. The fabled mountain crossing of the Isaac LeQuire family comes to life and what they endured on that fateful winter trek. Includes beautiful scenery and music, fantastic stories, and detail of the Battle of Shiloh.
