Fayetteville, NC, At War-- Part 1

From the Dec. 30, 2012, Fayetteville (NC) Observer "Civil War 150th Anniversary: December 1862 Developments."

DECEMBER 1, 1862

"A couple of gentlemen turned out on Friday last to solicit subscriptions for purchasing a supply of wood to be distributed among the poor of the town.

They collected $572 and 100 cords of wood, equal to near $1,000."

Even in war time, people were helping the poor.
