                  The Divided Mind of Civil War North Carolina
                  Richard Starnes, Western Carolina University

Confederate NC was a complex and contradictory place.  Among the last to secede, the state ultimately provided more soldiers than any other to the Confederate Army. Governor Zebulon Vance was an outspoken proponent of secession, but constantly battled the central government over issues of states' rights and faced various degrees of unionism within his own state. In this program, Dr. Richard Starnes explores the complex way North Carolinians from all stations of society viewed the Civil War, and examines the roots of these divisions.


This long-running monthly program series features a wide variety of speakers, performers and artists on an array of topics. During the Sesquicentennial year, each program in the series will focus on some aspect of the arts, history or culture of Transylvania County. Contact the Library for individual program listings. All programs are held in the Rogow Room of the Transylvania County Library, 212 South Gaston Street, Brevard.
