Abstract:
In the Appalachia Region of North Carolina, views on the secession from the United States at the start of the American Civil War were varied. For Watauga and Buncombe counties, culture and geography played a role in which side a community supported. Patterns in enlistment show that the higher elevations were more likely to be Unionists because of their disconnect with the slave economy.

Abstract:
In the 1920s, North Carolina became known as the Good Roads State, with concrete highways connecting large cities, county seats, and major institutions via a peak in bus companies. By the 1930s, three large bus companies emerged: Queen City Coach Company (Charlotte), Carolina Coach Company (Raleigh), and Camel City Coach Company (Winston-Salem). With steady growth and finance, these companies became part of then national networks for Trailways and Greyhound.
