Record #:
Eastern North Carolina could have been a major battleground of the Civil War. It was close to the Confederate capital in Richmond. The area possessed valuable resources, and many citizens supported the Union cause. Yet Northern war strategy bypassed the region, except for the capture of Roanoke Island and New Bern in 1862. It would be late 1864 before the Union recognized the area's value and moved to capture it.
