Back in the Old North State for the week

I am home for the week in Newport and it is nice to be back. I will be finished up some work for the Newport Barracks book, in addition to the continued book on North Carolinians at Gettysburg. While I am home if anyone would like a tour of the battle sites feel free to shoot me an email and we can set something up.

This week I will put up some posts here on a few topics of interest including information of a Carteret County soldier killed in Iverson's brigade on July 1st at Gettysburg.
