In fact, there were three governors that day, including Henry T. Clark who held the office until Vance took over. North Carolina's \"surplus\" governor, Edward Stanly, was appointed by President Lincoln to be military governor of that part of North Carolina in Federal control.

In 1793, the first sentence of death imposed by a federal court in the United States was passed at New Bern. Sentenced to death for mutiny on the high seas off Ocracoke Island, four sailors were ordered to be hung until dead. Shortly after passing Tybee Bar, two Frenchmen, two Englishmen, an Irishman, and an American conspired to murder the master and mate and take the ship to a northern European port.

Less than a century ago, pigeons were predominant in North Carolina, with two billion pigeons counted in one flock. Witness W. C. Allen recorded a tale about the migration of a 200-mile-long flock of pigeons as it was starting from a resting place for a flight further north. Today, there isn't a single one of these passenger pigeons in the world.
