Excerpt from The North Carolina Historical Review, Vol. 24: Issued Quarterly; January-October 1947 Martial law ruled the people of North Carolina just after the close of the Civil War. The economic, political, and Social life of the populace was upset by the recent conflict, and the losses enforced on them by legislative action and military commandeer ing began to be felt after a few months. Government was ad ministered by the military under the Reconstruction acts and the laws under which the state had operated before the war were outmoded by secession and by occupation as a rebel terri tory until a framework of government acceptable to Congress could be set up. During this period various sections of the state and many of its citizens had forced upon them, through daily contact with the unfortunate Of their communities, the realization that some thing Should be done to alleviate many social and economic conditions. In the North Carolina constitution of 1776 there had been no provision for care Of the commonwealth's unfortunate and under privileged citizens. Not until the months approached for the drafting of a new document of that nature could much be done about the omissions. But the time came for the election of dele gates to draft for the state a new basic law, and here and there prospective delegates were interested in bettering the social structure of North Carolina.

TO appreciate fully the significance of this act, one must recall the fact not only of North Carolina's oft-boasted economical strain, but also that one thousand dollars was a very respectable sum of money in that day.

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.

The controversies of the Protestant Reformation were still resounding in their ears from many a pulpit; and the principles of constitutional liberty as asserted by our fore fathers were glorified from every political platform. But the application of these glittering generalities to the actual prog ress and upbuilding of our American communities was not made apparent to their understandings.
