In memory of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources will be using Twitter and a Blog to bring back to life the voices of the past. Each day the NCDCR will be posting a tweet from a North Carolina primary source. The blog will expand on certain tweets so that the full resource can be viewed outside the constraints of the 140 character limit of Twitter. This will be a four year project with the hopes of sharing the impact of the Civil War on the people of North Carolina from their own words.
