Book description
"The Old North State at War:  The North Carolina Civil War Atlas" was 10 years in the making and by design extends beyond the military story and includes information on slavery, women, the home front, divided loyalties and dissent. It is an essential resource for all libraries and serious Civil War researchers.

In addition to groundbreaking information on Sherman's route, casualty statistics and the deployment of U.S. Colored Troops, the book features 99 newly-prepared maps based on period maps and modern GIS technology. The 200-page volume, measuring 11" x 17," provides many full-page maps. They are the most accurate and detailed ever produced of Civil War North Carolina, including maps of smaller engagements not mapped before.

Authors Mark Anderson Moore, Jessica Bandel and Michael Hill have produced the only state-level Civil War atlas of its kind. The project grew out of North Carolina's Civil War Sesquicentennial observance, marking 150 years since the Civil War. The book's seven chapters cover the whole of the war and includes tables, charts, and period photographs and drawings.

Six chapters chronologically document the war, beginning with North Carolina's political and demographic landscape in 1860 and taking the reader through the years of conflict to the war's aftermath. The seventh chapter covers the war's end and includes essays on the themes of the sesquicentennial observance: freedom, sacrifice and memory.
