Excerpt from The North Carolina Historical Review, Vol. 24: Issued Quarterly; January-October 1947 Martial law ruled the people of North Carolina just after the close of the Civil War. The economic, political, and Social life of the populace was upset by the recent conflict, and the losses enforced on them by legislative action and military commandeer ing began to be felt after a few months. Government was ad ministered by the military under the Reconstruction acts and the laws under which the state had operated before the war were outmoded by secession and by occupation as a rebel terri tory until a framework of government acceptable to Congress could be set up. During this period various sections of the state and many of its citizens had forced upon them, through daily contact with the unfortunate Of their communities, the realization that some thing Should be done to alleviate many social and economic conditions. In the North Carolina constitution of 1776 there had been no provision for care Of the commonwealth's unfortunate and under privileged citizens. Not until the months approached for the drafting of a new document of that nature could much be done about the omissions. But the time came for the election of dele gates to draft for the state a new basic law, and here and there prospective delegates were interested in bettering the social structure of North Carolina.

TO appreciate fully the significance of this act, one must recall the fact not only of North Carolina's oft-boasted economical strain, but also that one thousand dollars was a very respectable sum of money in that day.

Excerpt from The North Carolina Historical Review, Vol. 3: January, 1926 In the first place, Hinton R. Helper was not himself a poor white in a sense that will justify the quotation of the phrase, as the author elsewhere states (ibid., p. In the second place, unless we are to call all [the millions Of white people in the south who in 1860 owned no slaves, poor whites, I think the conclusion, upon investigation, will prove untenable. Finally, I am willing to hazard the Opinion that the grandparents or parents of the vast majority of the leading southerners of today along business, pro fessional or political lines, were not poor whites even in a non quotable sense. I suspect that an investigator would find that in the main they were slave-owners, business or professional people in the cities of the south, or else resided outside that section alto gether. There would be a considerable percentage who were small farmers of the New England or western economic type, but very few who properly could be designated poor whites.

Excerpt from The North Carolina Historical Review, Vol. 2: Issued Quarterly; January-October, 1925 Some time ago, Mr. H. L. Mencken referred to the South in the following words: Down there a poet is now almost as rare as an oboeplayer, a dry-paint etcher, or a metaphysician. It is, indeed, amazing to contemplate so vast a vacuity. One thinks of the interstellar spaces, of the colossal reaches of the now mythical ether. Nearly the whole of Europe could be lost in that stupen dous region of fat farms, shoddy cities and paralyzed cerebrums; one could throw in France, Germany and Italy, and still have room for the British Isles. And yet, for all its size and all its wealth and all the 'progress' it bab bles of, it is almost as sterile, artistically, intellectually, culturally, as the Sahara Desert. There are single acres in Europe that house more first-rate men than all the states South of the Potomac; there are probably Single square miles in America. If the whole of the late Confederacy were to be engulfed by a tidal wave tomorrow, the efiect upon the civilized minority of men in the world would be but little greater than that of a flood on the yang-tse-kiang. It would be impossible in all history to match so complete a drying up of a civilization. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The North Carolina Historical Review, Vol. 31: January-October 1954 Like most Of \those engaged in the promotion Of agricul tural reform, Weller was a farmer himself. He moved from Orange County in New York to Brinkleyville in Halifax County, North Carolina, in the 1820's, settling in that place on a 400-acre farm, for which he paid a dollar and a half an acre. This land was described as miserably and prover bially poor and was said to be dear at that price. With the aid Of hired hands and the application of the most advanced farming methods, this farm was brought into a high state of productivity and became a source Of satisfactory profit to the owner. 13 Weller never became a planter in the traditional sense, but engaged instead in general farming, viniculture, and in the operation of a small nursery.

This is an account of the seven military operations conducted by the Confederacy against deserters and disloyalists and the concomitant internal war between secessionists and those who opposed secession in the Quaker Belt of central North Carolina. It explains how the “outliers” (deserters and draft-dodgers) managed to elude capture and survive despite extensive efforts by Confederate authorities to hunt them down and return them to the army. The author discusses the development of the secret underground pro–Union organization the Heroes of America, and how its members utilized the Underground Railroad, dug-out caves, and an elaborate system of secret signals and communications to elude the “hunters.” Numerous instances of murder, rape, torture and other brutal acts and many skirmishes between gangs of deserters and Confederate and state troops are recounted. In a revisionist interpretation of the Tar Heel wartime peace movement, the author argues that William Holden’s peace crusade was in fact a Copperhead insurgency in which peace agitators strove for a return of North Carolina and the South to the Union on the Copperhead basis—that is, with the institution of slavery protected by the Constitution in the returning states.

Excerpt from The North Carolina Historical Review, Vol. 5: January-October, 1928 At the annual session in 1878 it was resolved to hold monthly meetings for the accommodation of those who had papers to read. This suggested to the Secretary, John Snow, a successful business man, the feasibility of publishing a monthly periodical entitled the Alabama Historical Reporter, containing the minutes or proceedings of the Society and such other materials as might be pertinent. The project turned out to be fairly successful. Snow guaranteed the expense of publication and Walter Guild did the editorial work. Under these auspices the Reporter was extensively circulated throughout the country and soon brought the Society in touch with those of other states. Many valuable periodicals and publications were received in exchange from the societies of Massachusetts, New York, Wisconsin, Virginia, Ten nessee and Georgia. But this success was of no long duration. By the end of 1885 the Historical Reporter had ceased to appear even at irregular intervals, and attendance at the monthly meetings of the Society had reached the vanishing point. The Society continued to main tain a nominal existence; but the minutes, the subscription book, and the official accounts were misplaced and have never been recovered.

Charles N. Hunter and Race Relations in North Carolina

Charles N. Hunter, one of North Carolina's outstanding black reformers, was born a slave in Raleigh around 1851, and he lived there until his death in 1931. As public school teacher, journalist, and historian, Hunter devoted his long life to improving opportunities for blacks. A political activist, but never a radical, he skillfully used his journalistic abilities and his personal contacts with whites to publicize the problems and progress of his race. He urged blacks to ally themselves with the best of the white leaders, and he constantly reminded whites that their treatment of his race ran counter to their professed religious beliefs and the basic tenets of the American liberal tradition. By carefully balancing his efforts, Hunter helped to establish a spirit of passive protest against racial injustice. John Haley's compelling book, largely based on Hunter's voluminous papers, affords a unique opportunity to view race relations in North Carolina through the eyes of a black man. It also provides the first continuous survey of the black experience in the state from the end of the Civil War to the Great Depression, an account that critiques the belief that race relations were better in North Carolina than in other southern states.
