The North Carolina Civil War Experience — Our new Website has been launched !!
During the sesquicentennial commemoration, the Division of Historic Sites and Properties will explore a new approach to interpreting North Carolina's Civil War experience. This initiative will expand our sites' view of the conflict, connecting the sites with a comprehensive approach that demonstrates how one event or aspect of the war impacted another.
A main goal will be a Civil War education program for eighth grade students, both statewide and site-specific, based on the North Carolina Standard Course of Study objectives for teaching the Civil War in North Carolina. Topics will include:
- The Road to Secession
- North Carolina as a Civil War Battlefield
- Wartime North Carolina
- War's End and Reconstruction in North Carolina
