Civil War Lecture Update, the Archives on Twitter, and World War I

If you haven’t already seen the correction on the previous blog post, the date of the “Changing Tides: The Burnside Expedition” lecture has been changed from February 13, 2012 to February 20, 2012 due to unforeseen circumstances; we apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause those planning to attend. We hope that many of you will be able to join us in the State Archives/Library auditorium on the 20th to hear the talk.

Also, the State Archives of North Carolina (the form of our name that we will be changing to soon) has a new, official Twitter account: @NCArchives. Please follow us for the latest news on archives, records management, genealogy, North Carolina history, and upcoming events.

The newest additions to the World War I collection in the North Carolina Digital Collections are the photographs of Thomas N. Bryson (who was from Macon County, N.C., and served in the 30th Division during World War I) and the photo album of Warren C. McNeill (from Lumberton, N.C. and who served on the U.S.S. Louisiana). I’ll have more information about those collection in a blog post that will be online next week.
