Civil War in NE North Carolina

Burnside's Expedition and beyond


I am in contact with a reporter at the Daily Advance and am working with him to get a story in the paper. he seemed receptive to the idea and we are trying to make some plans. I made sure to include Bruce and Don Pendergraft and also mention Wendell Small.

If all goes through I hope to get a human interest story in the press and see if we can't shake the descendant tree and see if anyone falls out! My thought is to do a history gathering day - collect family histories, hopefully see papers, medals, etc. if any are out there.

Whooo hooo!
