A look around the Old North State

There is much going on around our fair state – I hope to see you at one of these events! Personally, I’ll be signing books at the Orchard at Altapass on the Blue Ridge Parkway on Saturday, and attending the reenactment at Allison’s Woods on Sunday.

Article on Lt. Frederick Dick of the 44th NCT, who moved to Nebraska after the war can be found here.  However, the article states that Dick was captured South Anna Bridge in July 1863. According to the Troop books, he was captured on June 26, 1863.

According to this article from the Daytona Beach News Journal, North Carolina only has 10 real daughters left. Check it out here.

Information about a series of Civil War Round Tables in Southport can be found here. I wish this was closer.

A living history in Jefferson (Ashe County) with our friends in the 26th NCT is coming up soon. Learn more here.

A very interesting (and short) article about the possible location of Confederate dead at New Bern can be found here.

Some information about Fort Hamby, a part of our post-war history, can be found here. Fort Hamby was in Wilkes County.

There is a exhibit of some war-time letters at Alamance Community College, but I could not quite figure out who Kerr was. Check it out here.

There is apparently a living history at the Lawndale Museum in Cleveland Couty this weekend. You can learn more here.
