After Appomattox: NC Civil War Monuments
Author, photographer, and Road Scholar Douglas Butler is coming to the Library on Thursday, November 6, at 5:30 pm to share Civil War history and remembrances through memorial monuments built in North Carolina.

Why is he "Silent Sam"?
This statue at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has been greeting students and visitors since 1913. The answer to the question: Although Sam is armed, he is not wearing a cartridge box!

Visit Dr. Butler's website to learn more fascinating Civil War facts, and join us on November 6 in the Local History & Genealogy Room upstairs. He will be lecturing and signing his book. Dr. Butler and his research makes history come alive.

This program is sponsored by an award from the North Carolina Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Our thanks to the "Road Scholar" program!
