New Exhibit in Search Room

As a follow-up to our recent blog post pertaining to the Shelton Laurel Massacre, the Search Room of the State Archives of North Carolina has set up a new exhibit to highlight some of the documents relating to the Shelton Laurel Massacre on January 18, 1863, and the efforts to bring those responsible to justice. These documents range from letters to Governor Zebulon Vance to the wanted poster for James Keith, the former commander of the troops that participated in the atrocity. Please drop by and view these documents during your next visit to the Search Room.
