News and notes

We’ve not really visited the news scene in a while, so here is a look around the Old North State.

The folks at Blog Divided have an article about Hinton Rowan Helper, a North Carolina native who wrote The Impending Crisis in 1858. The book was a call to Southerners to end slavery, and caused quite a stir. Check out the post here.

Andrew Duppstadt, over at Civil War Navy, talks about a Civil War living history on the WWII USS North Carolina in Wilmington. You can check out his post here. Hopefully, photos will follow soon.

There are quite a few articles around on the counting of North Carolina’s Civil War dead, which I talked about last week. You can read more about it here, here, and here.

There is a interesting article about the end of the war in Cleveland County in the Cleveland Star. Check it out here.

An interesting article about the North Carolina Civil War Sesquicentennial Web Site can be found in an editorial here at JDNews.com

You can read a great article about a women whose father served in the 28th North Carolina Troops here.
