Summer 2021 Update


We at the North Carolina Civil War & Reconstruction History Center have heard recently that there are concerns with content on this website -- specifically, that the stories and descriptions within do not show a diversity of subject matter and are one-sided.

Based on those concerns, the Directors of the History Center's Foundation decided in their Board meeting on Tuesday, July 13th, to take steps to address them.

Our challenge is that the criticism hasn't come from direct contact but from rumors in the community. We can't respond appropriately to those. If you have specific concerns, please contact us via email at or call 336-416-4530. We may have already addressed the issues or are in the process of doing so.

There is one important point we want to make now: If you or your family members have any North Carolina-related stories from the Civil War and Reconstruction period, we want them! Please submit them by clicking on the button below. This is a center for all North Carolinians, and we want our content to reflect that. But we can't do it without your help. If you would like for your story to be included, even if you have some details but not everything, let us know that. We might be able to help fill in the blanks.

Thank you!

The Civil War and Reconstruction – The Most Transformative Period in North Carolina’s History.

NC Civil War & Reconstruction History Center

Our State’s story needs room to breathe because it extends beyond those four years of war and because it cannot be neatly wrapped in Confederate gray. North Carolina’s enduring Civil War legacy is more like a quilt: a patch work of blue and gray, white and black, and various shades in between.
