A chapter is devoted to biographical sketches of three notable Mecklenburg County residents3/4Presidents Andrew Jackson and James K. Polk, and Senator Zebulon Baird Vance. The Appendix serves primarily to supplement the "Narrative" section, providing additional information and expanded historical background on a number of topics.
