The Civil War in North Carolina
More than 125,000 North Carolinians, young and old, served the Confederacy.
They were known as Tar Heels for their reluctance to give up their allegiance to their home state, but when the call came, they went.
And they died...
Nearly half of these men were wounded at least once, and more than 40,000 of them died during the war - more than from any other Southern state. The number of survivors who suffered permanent physical or emotional scarring or died prematurely because of their war experiences cannot be known.
Back home, loyalties to the Confederacy or the Union divided many neighbors and communities. As the war progressed, civilians as well as soldiers faced increasing hardships.
This site and the books and DVDs we publish are dedicated to telling their stories.
