Abstract:
The four-day siege and capture of the federal post at Plymouth, North Carolina, on 20 April 1864, spawned stories afterward of the murder of captured \"Buffaloes\" (white North Carolina Unionists) and blacks. Because of the disputed, contradictory, and inconclusive nature of the evidence, historians' views of events have differed. A review of a more comprehensive collection of evidence suggests that, despite arguments to the contrary, there was a massacre that took the lives of approximately fifty of the nearly 4,500 military and civilian persons in Plymouth on 20 April.

Abstract:
This article examines the role of Alexander Welch Reynold, commander of the North Carolina-Virginia Brigade, in the Battle at Missionary Ridge near Chattanooga, Tennessee, in November 1863 during the Civil War. The majority of historical research has considered Reynold's brigade as a leading cause of the Confederate defeat but additional official reports from the battle have cleared the brigade.
