North Carolina's Civil War Monuments

From the May 26, 2013, Jefferson Post.

Author and photographer Douglas J. Butler of Crumpler has published "North Carolina Civil War Mounuments: An Illustrated History."  It has 272 pages and is paperback.  Butler says it took him two years and 15,000 miles through the state to make the book which has the histories of dozens of the 109 monuments as well as 137 photographs.

Two monuments I am especially interested in are the one at Wilmington's Oakdale Cemetery for 367 Confederate dead buried there.  Goldsboro's Willowdale has a mass grave for 800 dead.

Of Great Interest to Me.  --Old Secesh
