Memorial Day

On this Memorial Day, I'm not going to get into politics or the right or wrong of war. I just want to say a thank you to all those men and women who served North Carolina in her hour of need. Thousands gave the ultimate sacrifice on many a bloody field. Here's to them.

Welcome to North Carolina State Troops blog! This blog is about the men who served in the several regiments and battalions from North Carolina during the late unpleasantness. I hope to be able to share and learn from you the poster, about the North Carolina soldiers' commanders, his battles, his regiments and brigades, his weapons, his clothing, his...well, you get the picture.

I am born and raised in North Carolina. I have twenty-six relatives who bore arms in the service of the Old North State from 1861-1865. Artillery, Cavalry, Infantry, Quartermasters, you name it. I hope for this site to be a reservoir of photos, stories, letters, opinions, anything concerning North Carolina's soldiers. It is my hope to post a couple times a week. Until then, "For the honor of the Old North State, Forward!"
