Abstract:
Considered as one of North Carolina's controversial figures, William W. Holden was a leading editor, leader in four political parties, and chief executive of the state on two occasions. Holden also built the Democratic Party to dominance in North Carolina but controversy over controlled interests forced him to split from the party. By 1860, Holden shifted from his militant view of state succession, promoting the role of North Carolina as a mediator, or peace maker, against the overthrow of national government.

Abstract:
Following the South's defeat at Gettysburg, Raleigh newspaperman William Woods Holden urged negotiations with the North to bring peace. His peace movement put him at odds with many people, including his old friend Zebulon Vance, who defeated Holden for governor in 1864. North Carolina was the only state that had a peace movement. Confederate troops even sacked Holden's offices and threatened his life. After the war Holden became governor in 1868, but his support of African-American rights and opposition to the Ku Klux Klan led to his impeachment. He was removed from office in 1871, the first U.S. governor to endure this fate.

Abstract:
The new breed of liberal campus activist is being labeled “PC” for their political correctness. The media and conservative individuals oppose the activists for their “politics of difference.” Women, black, gay, and other liberal minority students say the system has excluded them for so long that they only way they can get equality is by magnifying their differences and demanding more than other groups. Some intimidation of activists has occurred on Duke’s and UNC’s campuses, but students are committed to fighting the status quo.

With the Persian Gulf War underway and many community members affected by the war, their focus has shifted to lobbying for peace. They have made an impact through community organizing and their non-confrontational approach to lobbying.

Abstract:
With the Persian Gulf War little more than a month old, peace activists in the Triangle area are attempting to regroup after failing to prevent war. The Triangle peace movement had success before the war holding one of the nation’s largest anti-war rallies. Now that the war has started, the group is facing challenges within its member groups about the strategy going forward. They recognize the need to be more inclusive, but the many differing opinions on how to do so is causing conflict and preventing continued peace efforts.

Additionally, anti-war groups are broadening their focus, paying attention to homelessness and race relations in an effort to attract more supporters and minorities. Also, absent from the protesting groups in the state are veterans.

Abstract:
This battle's carnage is measured in more than Union and Confederate casualties. Included by the author were the destruction of the 26th North Carolina Regiment as a formidable force. Attesting to Gettysburg’s destruction included 28,000 Confederate dead or wounded, 2,935 of whom were buried in Virginia’s Hollywood Cemetery. The large number of North Carolina soldiers killed, one in four of total forces, helped to usher in a peace movement yielding 100 rallies and increased division between the Secessionists and Unionists.
