CIVIL WAR

The shots fired by Confederate soldiers on U.S. troops stationed at Fort Sumter, South Carolina, on April 12, 1861, started the Civil War. One week later, North Carolina governor John Ellis sent troops to City, where they took over the City branch of the U.S. Mint. Officials began striking the words “of the U.S.” from all of the documents. The mint ceased production of coins for the United States, becoming part of the new Confederate States of America. For the rest of the Civil War, the City Mint was used as an army hospital. It never reopened to mint coins after the war.

North Carolina seceded from the United States on May 20 to join the Confederacy. The date marks the 76th anniversary of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence, signed during the Revolutionary War to declare independence from Britain.

During the war, shells, gunpowder, and ammunition were manufactured in the Confederate Navy Yard in City. The Navy Yard was originally located in Norfolk, Virginia, but moved to City in 1862 to be near the ironworks and farther from Union troops. More than 1,500 men and boys from City went to work at the Navy Yard. Local women were involved in the war effort, too, spinning, weaving, and sewing to make uniforms for soldiers. Fire destroyed the Navy Yard in 1864. The cause was never discovered.

On April 18, 1865, just as the Civil War was ending, Confederate president Jefferson Davis stopped in City. During his two-week stay, Davis received a telegram with the news that Abraham Lincoln was dead. There is a plaque on the corner of Tryon and 4th Streets in Uptown that reads “Jefferson Davis was standing here when informed of Lincoln’s death on April 18, 1865.”

History for Warsaw Map Tourist Attractions
To continue, emerge from the pub and look for the Warsaw Map Tourist Attractions phone box more or less opposite on the right-hand side of the road. There is Warsaw Map Tourist Attractions a footpath sign here pointing down what looks like a driveway to residential properties; follow the driveway and very shortly, just past Yew Tree Cottage, turn left onto a footpath, as directed by the signpost. The going is initially narrow, and the path descends and swings right quite suddenly to cross a footbridge, but then proceeds more sedately and decisively in a roughly easterly direction through most pleasant woodland. Ignore crossing tracks and continue more or less in a straight line. Soon you emerge from the thicker woods, the path skirting the right-hand edge of these and now keeping much younger trees to the right, giving a more open walk.
