Charles K. Stuart

Deputy U.S. Marshal Charles K. Stuart was shot and killed during the moonshine wars in Tennessee.

Marshal Stuart and his two brothers, John and Joe, had captured a moonshiner in Tennessee near the North Carolina border at Pack Gap. A band of assumed moonshiners intercepted Deputy Marshal Stuart and his brothers. The group of men demanded the release of their friend and when Deputy Marshall Stuart refused, they opened fire.

Marshal Stuart was shot in the head by a .38 Winchester ball. His brother, John, was also killed, having been shot three times along with one of the attackers. Their prisoner was retained in custody by their brother Joe, who was uninjured.
