Zebulon Vance and His Reconstruction of the Civil War in North Carolina


Author(s):
Abstract:
This article discusses and examines Zebulon B. Vance, North Carolina's governor during the Civil War, and his defense for the state's secession and his own actions as governor. Vance's defense hinged on a reluctant North Carolina being pressured by outside forces and his own sense of duty that caused him to support the Confederacy. This line of reasoning boosted Vance into a successful political career.
