Its inclusion adds value to the Center’s collection of stories from all 100 counties. It also furthers the Center’s core mission: to promote
understanding of the Antebellum, Civil War and Reconstruction periods through the lives, words and work of North Carolinians from all
walks of life. As parts of that larger story, submissions are subject to editing for clarity, including spelling, grammar and syntax.There is
nothing tasteful about war, but it should be presented without adding unnecessary offense or insult to readers. And all language borrowed
from other published, broadcast or copyrighted material must be clearly attributed to its source.
All story contributors automatically become Members of the North Carolina Civil War History Center through December 2016.
