"Moonshine battles" of 1912 + This Day in NC history

There is a 1941 book called “How North Carolina Grew” that I use in my research for This Day in North Carolina History.  In it is a curious entry dated Jan. 9-12, 1912 stating “’Moonshiners’ near Mt. Airy and Murphy engage in pitched battles with officers; militia ordered to Mt. Airy.”

I can’t find more details. Does anyone on H-NC know anything more about this event?

And, again, if you have ideas for This Day in North Carolina History, please contact me.  We are still looking at making it a 4-year project.  We’re about 18 months in now.
