Excerpt from The North Carolina Historical Review, Vol. 2: Issued Quarterly; January-October, 1925 Some time ago, Mr. H. L. Mencken referred to the South in the following words: Down there a poet is now almost as rare as an oboeplayer, a dry-paint etcher, or a metaphysician. It is, indeed, amazing to contemplate so vast a vacuity. One thinks of the interstellar spaces, of the colossal reaches of the now mythical ether. Nearly the whole of Europe could be lost in that stupen dous region of fat farms, shoddy cities and paralyzed cerebrums; one could throw in France, Germany and Italy, and still have room for the British Isles. And yet, for all its size and all its wealth and all the 'progress' it bab bles of, it is almost as sterile, artistically, intellectually, culturally, as the Sahara Desert. There are single acres in Europe that house more first-rate men than all the states South of the Potomac; there are probably Single square miles in America. If the whole of the late Confederacy were to be engulfed by a tidal wave tomorrow, the efiect upon the civilized minority of men in the world would be but little greater than that of a flood on the yang-tse-kiang. It would be impossible in all history to match so complete a drying up of a civilization. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The North Carolina Historical Review, Vol. 23: Issued Quarterly; January-October, 1946 At the turn of the eighteenth century a great upsurge of re ligious enthusiasm began to develop in the frontier regions of the South. Reaching tidal-wave proportions in Kentucky during 1800-1801, it swept eastward, overflowing the older communities of the Atlantic seaboard. Rightly this religious catharsis has been called the Great Revival, for it produced a revolution in the religious life of the South and the West. The background Of this movement was a state of irreligion into which the Southern people had relapsed, due partly to deism, to the effects Of the American Revolution, and to the rapid expansion of the, frontier. The central idea behind the movement was an American crusade to save souls from hell - that terrifying illusion haunting the minds of the people. The agency used to effect this end was pe culiarly suited to the rural population of that period - the camp meeting, which gathered tremendous crowds from scattered homesteads to listen to relays of ministers preaching a religion of high emotional voltage.1 After 1805 the excitement of 'the Great Revival began to ebb, but revivals did not disappear from the mores of the ante-bellum South or from other sections of the country. Rather, they'came at intervals and ran their courses. In 1857-58, for example, after a serious financial panic, a widespread religious revival took place in the Northern states. The last great revival in the South occurred among the gray-clad soldiers of the Confederacy fol lowing tragic reverses in battle. Frail human nature appears.

The North Carolina Civil War Atlas is a comprehensive full-color study of the impact of the war on the Tar Heel State, incorporating 97 original maps. The only state-level atlas of its kind, the book is a sesquicentennial project of the North Carolina Office of Archives and History. The large format (11" x 17") volume highlights every significant military engagement and analyzes the war's social, economic, and political consequences through tables, charts, and text. Manuscripts, election returns, newspapers, census records, and other sources were used to prepare the narrative and compile the tabulated data. From the capture of Hatteras Island and the Burnside Expedition through the fall of Fort Fisher and the Carolinas Campaign of 1865, the state's Civil War history is examined in a new light. Groundbreaking information includes updated casualty statistics, General Sherman's route of march, and the role of U.S. Colored Troops. Historic road networks are based on wartime maps created by engineer Jeremy F. Gilmer matched against the earliest modern road surveys. A variety of primary manuscript map resources were used from the State Archives and the University of North Carolina. Thanks to GIS technology, wartime places and landmarks, identified with their contemporary spellings, are presented in their correct geospatial orientation. Rare photographs complete the package. The North Carolina Civil War Atlas belongs on the shelves of every serious student of the Civil War in general, and the war in North Carolina in particular. This vital reference work will immediately take its rightful place in libraries alongside other North Carolina studies penned by such scholars as John G. Barrett, Mark Bradley, and Chris Fonvielle.
