I just announced an updated version of our Christmas exhibit, “Carolina Christmas,” over on the main Archives blog. While there aren’t many Civil War related items in that exhibit, there are a few including two diary entries – one from Alonzo Etheridge Bell writing from the prison on Governors Island, N.Y. (1861) and another from Catherine Ann Devereux Edmondston of Halifax County (1864).
Other Civil War related items that have been added online recently:
- George L. Cunningham (of Haywood County, N.C.) to George L. Cunningham, Sr., April 21, 1862, from Yorktown (York County, Va.)
- John N. Cunningham to George L. Cunningham, Sr., June 22, 1861, from Raleigh, N.C.
- David N. McCorkle (from Catawba County, N.C.) to Rhoda McCorkle, Aug. 17, 1861
