SCV Private Bryan Jackson Buck Camp 1769, Peletier, NC September 2016 Meeting

Dan Taylor, Lieutenant Commander, gave a presentation on The War in NC including basic causes and timeline. Destruction of  infrastructure such as railroads, towns, factories and homes.  Fall of Wilmington, Bentonville and  the rest of the Old North State.  Reconstruction to the Yankees meant robbery, burning and placing unreasonable taxes on property which caused many to lose their ancestor's homes to Carpetbaggers.
