Civil War in NE North Carolina

Burnside's Expedition and beyond



I know you all will be as happy as I am when I tell you that I got a great call from Wanda Stiles at the museum (MOA) on Friday.  We played phone tag once or twice but finally made the connection.  She told me that they had recently (that day) found the Martin Camp book referenced by Elliott, that I mentioned in a previous post.


Praise be that the item is right where it should be.  Now, I hope to get to see it soon.


Three cheers for Wanda!  Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah!

I asked Wanda Stiles when I can see the Martin Camp books. She said at the Civil War Living History Day on Feb. 12th at the Museum of the Albemarle.
