I love American history and because I’ve been resident in North Carolina for over 20 years, I am especially interested in the history of this State and, particularly, the Wilmington area.
Periodically, I find information–often little known– about people and events that fascinate me, and I’m anxious to share them with readers who enjoy learning about our past.
I’ve been an avid reader (and admitted critic) of the modern Wilmington StarNews for many years. Naturally, a segment from a local history website about the founding history of people who established the newspaper and its historic chronology caught my interest.
But this is more than the history of the paper; it describes also what was happening locally in this section of the Confederate South after the War Between the States.
Those similarly interested may find the posting below worthwhile.
