The Name Tarheel Has a Civil War Connection


In  my Down Da Road I Go blog, I have been writing about where the name Tarheels comes from in connection with the UNC-Chapel Hill winning the NCAA  National Basketball Championship earlier this month.

There are two theories as to where the name comes from.

One has to do with the American revolution and the other with the Civil War.

You can read about it by clicking on the Down Da Road I Go site to the right of this.

Of course, since the name Tarheel may have come from Confederates, I guess a new name will have to be found.  The Big "S" word, you know.
