The Confederate Refugees in North Carolina

Record #:
The Civil War brought displacement to many residents of the South, though North Carolina did experience as large or continuing displacement of its citizens as other states, nor did it receive a great influx of refugees despite its provision and sporadic unionist infiltration. Reasons for this may be that refugees did not know that North Carolina was a safe haven, the state's geography made movement difficult, and a prejudice against North Carolina's people by citizens of other states. The activities and movements of urban and suburban homeless and displaced persons in specific areas are detailed.
