Guess what? I am now an official NC Humanities Council Roads Scholar. My subject: Civil War Charlotte - Last Capital of the Confederacy. Yes, it is a talk based upon my book of the same title. Why do I believe Charlotte was the last capital of the Confederacy? Buy the book, or, fill out the request for a grant to bring me to your town or city to discuss not only the role Charlotte played during the last days of the War, but also the role of the Queen City during the War.
