Construction of the main building at Peace College began in 1858, with a planned opening for classes in 1861. However, with the outbreak of the Civil War, education was suspended, and the structure served as a Confederate hospital until the end of the war. Union forces then used it for the Freedmen's Bureau until the college took over again.
The end of the Civil War and its effect on Raleigh is explored. Both Confederate and Union troops took any and all livestock, goods, and material they could find during the last three weeks of the war. The Confederate troops were ordered to do this to prevent Gen. William T. Sherman’s troop from using the supplies. The physical evidence left by the war that is still visible in Raleigh and sites of major significance in Raleigh during the war are also described.
