Fall 2021 Update


We believe we have made good progress in addressing concerns about the website content, having responded to every concern that was clearly articulated to us. We are most grateful for the constructive feedback.

Based on that, we revisited the sections entitled Honor, Memory, Sacrifice, and Freedom (sub-categories under the tab above entitled "The Exhibit"). Working in consultation with several of the state's leading historians, we have done a complete rewrite of these four sections.

Our plans for 2022 call for a top-to-bottom redesign of the website, because the current one which was created six years ago is outdated. It does not reflect the progress made in the past few years including the opening of Phase 1 (VanStory History Village), the groundbreaking for Phase 2 (Outdoor Education Pavilion), or our plans for the future.

Again, we make a request for more family stories:  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.
