Abstract:
An exploration revealed its many purposes since 1784. Home for John Stanly Wright's family until the Civil War, it was General Burnside’s New Bern headquarters and a convent for the Sisters of Mercy through 1884. Heirs of James Bryan owned the house until 1932, when it was sold to the New Bern Library Association. The house was the town’s library for three decades before Tryon Palace Commission purchased the building, restored its Georgian style, and moved it to its current location, George Street.

Abstract:
By 1862, North Carolina was divided by more than region. In the Piedmont and mountains, secessionists had control of the government. In the Coastal Plain, there was vast Union troop occupation, from major battle losses in Washington, New Bern, Morehead City, Wilmington, Beaufort. All over the state, chaos was also the victor because of conditions such as diphtheria outbreaks; guerrilla forces called “buffaloes”; Confederate forces that were intermittently organized; military generals seizing governmental control in the void of political leadership.
