The Burning of Winton in 1862

Record #:
Although North Carolina cast her fortunes with those of the Confederacy in 1861, it was not until February 1862 that the Civil War was seriously felt in the eastern region of the state. During that time, Winton, a village on the Chowan River, was burned by Union troops. This event resulted in the disgrace of an entire regiment as an object in the futility of war.
