Zeb vs. Old Jeff


Abstract:
Zebulon Baird Vance, \"war governor\" from 1862-1865, was likely the most popular and beloved chief executive in all of North Carolina history. The Confederate policy of impressing private property for military uses provoked bitter protest between Vance and Confederate President Davis. Though a critic of Davis and the Confederate government, his policy was to \"fight the Yankees and fuss with the Confederacy.\"
