Excerpt from The North Carolina Historical Review, 1924, Vol. 1 They would have thought of history as concerned with cer tain movements and persons of remote rather than immediate concern. The controversies of the Protestant Reformation were still resounding in their ears from many a pulpit; and the principles of constitutional liberty as asserted by our fore fathers were glorified from every political platform. But the application of these glittering generalities to the actual prog ress and upbuilding of our American communities was not made apparent to their understandings.

Excerpt from The North Carolina Historical Review, Vol. 24: Issued Quarterly; January-October 1947 Martial law ruled the people of North Carolina just after the close of the Civil War. The economic, political, and Social life of the populace was upset by the recent conflict, and the losses enforced on them by legislative action and military commandeer ing began to be felt after a few months. Government was ad ministered by the military under the Reconstruction acts and the laws under which the state had operated before the war were outmoded by secession and by occupation as a rebel terri tory until a framework of government acceptable to Congress could be set up. During this period various sections of the state and many of its citizens had forced upon them, through daily contact with the unfortunate Of their communities, the realization that some thing Should be done to alleviate many social and economic conditions. In the North Carolina constitution of 1776 there had been no provision for care Of the commonwealth's unfortunate and under privileged citizens. Not until the months approached for the drafting of a new document of that nature could much be done about the omissions. But the time came for the election of dele gates to draft for the state a new basic law, and here and there prospective delegates were interested in bettering the social structure of North Carolina.

This is an account of the seven military operations conducted by the Confederacy against deserters and disloyalists and the concomitant internal war between secessionists and those who opposed secession in the Quaker Belt of central North Carolina. It explains how the "outliers" (deserters and draft-dodgers) managed to elude capture and survive despite extensive efforts by Confederate authorities to hunt them down and return them to the army. The author discusses the development of the secret underground pro-Union organization the Heroes of America, and how its members utilized the Underground Railroad, dug-out caves, and an elaborate system of secret signals and communications to elude the "hunters." Numerous instances of murder, rape, torture and other brutal acts and many skirmishes between gangs of deserters and Confederate and state troops are recounted. In a revisionist interpretation of the Tar Heel wartime peace movement, the author argues that William Holden's peace crusade was in fact a Copperhead insurgency in which peace agitators strove for a return of North Carolina and the South to the Union on the Copperhead basis--that is, with the institution of slavery protected by the Constitution in the returning states.

Of America’s thirteen original colonies, North Carolina was one of the most rural, its urban population miniscule and its maritime commerce severely limited—except in the town of Wilmington. Prior to the Civil War, the coastal town was North Carolina’s largest urban area and principal seaport, with shipping as the mainstay of the local economy. Wilmington indeed was a singular place in colonial and antebellum North Carolina. This book presents the history of Wilmington from its founding and development to the eve of the Civil War. Part I traces Wilmington’s history from the incorporation of the town in 1739–40 to 1789, when North Carolina joined the newly formed United States of America. This section focuses on the confused and disputed origins of Wilmington, life in a colonial urban setting, the growing importance of the port, and town governance. Part II expands upon the preceding topics for the years 1789 to 1861. It also examines the economic development of the port, the wide variety of social activities, the growth of the African American population, and Wilmington’s role in state and national politics.

Many Excellent People examines the nature of North Carolina's social system, particularly race and class relations, power, and inequality, during the last half of the nineteenth century. Paul Escott portrays North Carolina's major social groups, focusing on the elite, the ordinary white farmers or workers, and the blacks, and analyzes their attitudes, social structure, and power relationships. Quoting frequently from a remarkable array of letters, journals, diaries, and other primary sources, he shows vividly the impact of the Civil War, Emancipation, Reconstruction, Populism, and the rise of the New South industrialism on southern society. Working within the new social history and using detailed analyses of five representative counties, wartime violence, Ku Klux Klan membership, stock-law legislation, and textile mill records, Escott reaches telling conclusions on the interplay of race, class, and politics. Despite fundamental political and economic reforms, Escott argues, North Carolina's social system remained as hierarchical and undemocratic in 1900 as it had been in 1850.

For a generation, scholarship on the Reconstruction era has rightly focused on the struggles of the recently emancipated for a meaningful freedom and defined its success or failure largely in those terms. In The Ordeal of the Reunion, Mark Wahlgren Summers goes beyond this vitally important question, focusing on Reconstruction's need to form an enduring Union without sacrificing the framework of federalism and republican democracy. Assessing the era nationally, Summers emphasizes the variety of conservative strains that confined the scope of change, highlights the war's impact and its aftermath, and brings the West and foreign policy into an integrated narrative. In sum, this book offers a fresh explanation for Reconstruction's demise and a case for its essential successes as well as its great failures. Indeed, this book demonstrates the extent to which the victors' aims in 1865 were met--and at what cost. Summers depicts not just a heroic, tragic moment with equal rights advanced and then betrayed but a time of achievement and consolidation, in which nationhood and emancipation were placed beyond repeal and the groundwork was laid for a stronger, if not better, America to come.
