Many publications, maps, and other documents published during the past four years contain a vast amount of data including all 13 colonies throughout the war. Misc. military links located at the bottom of the page contain various free links for other United States wars. A separate page for the Civil War is listed on Piedmont Trails for North Carolina. Please report any links that are no longer working correctly. We have also launched a new project this year pertaining to the Loyalists in North Carolina. Be sure to watch for upcoming articles on the website as we dig deep for the records. The skirmishes fought between the Loyalist militia and the Patriot militia happened primarily on North Carolina soil. For most families, the year of 1780 was noted as the first civil war. Stay tuned for updates as we explore this topic in 2022.
