New Georgia website

I noticed this morning that Georgia has launched its 150th Civil War website -   I encourage you to check it out. Compare this events web page ( with North Carolina’s 150 Civil War website events page (  Nothing on the North Carolina page is current. Yet I know that there are events happening all over the place. Yes, I know, the Georgia site is hosted/sponsored by the the tourism department, but, one of the primary goals of the North Carolina site is to: “extend to the citizens of the state and others, via a layered and interdisciplinary approach, an understanding of the complexity of the issues surrounding the war and to transform the interpretation of the events for a new generation.” Virginia has a comparable site ( – it lists events all over the state. North Carolina needs to catch on and start listing events that going on in the Tar Heel state that will help interpreting “events for a new generation.”
