Civil War in NE North Carolina

Burnside's Expedition and beyond

Wednesday, April 19, 2017, will be the 155th anniversary of the Battle of South Mills, aka the Battle of Sawyer's Lane in the South and the Battle of Camden in the North. In honor of the anniversary, I began a new blog - Sawyer's Lane: the battle of South Mills blog that includes information not available on my webpage Battle of South Mills.. Has it been 155 years already?
