Parading Off to War

Record #:
In part two of Gerard's eight-part series on the Civil War, he writes pre-Civil War spirits amongst the state's volunteer army were as brazen as the newly stitched uniforms and flags worn and carried by so many young North Carolinians. Unfortunately for these men, their finery outmatched weaponry; most troops armed with the family's hunting rifle or state provided surplus rifles from the Revolutionary War. Their attitudes were born from a sense of righteous cause and \"no cultural memory of defeat.\"
