News and notes

Time again for what has turned into a bi-monthly look across North Carolina for headlines that deal with the Old North State and the War.

Recently, a new web page/blog was launched that focuses on North Eastern North Carolina and the Civil War – check it out here.

Information regarding a soldier in the 51st North Carolina Troops, from Robeson County, can be found in the Sun News, which you can read here.

There are several stories (I saw one on the news from Charlotte) about what is called the Juneteenth celebration. You can learn more here.

Old Cross Creek Cemetery, in Fayetteville, home of the oldest Confederate monument in the state, was recently vandalized. You can learn more here.

You can find some information here on a new exhibit at the North Carolina Museum of History on people of Jewish descendent here in North Carolina. I’ve not seen the exhibit, but there are some mentions of Tar Heel Confederates in the article.

There are a couple of mentions of Civil War related sites in this post, about the Wilmington area.
