Three Weeks of Bumming

Record #:
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.
