This Day in North Carolina History is Moving


This Day in North Carolina History was launched on WordPress on October 1, 2013.  At the time we had no idea how long we would be able to continue to find fresh content for each day.  As time passed it got harder and harder to find new topics, so the decision was made to put the emails into re-run on October 1, 2016.  With that change comes the opportunity to move all of the old posts into a new platform that will be more attractive and, most importantly, easier to search.  Links that you have on websites will continue to function as they always have.  The site will just look and operate differently.

    Good Afternoon,

    Thank you for all you are doing with this site. I have enjoyed it immensely and have shared with other teachers and particularly friends and family who now live out of state. I personally find it inspiring, at least most of the time. During Black History Month particularly!

    I’ll look forward to the new format.

    thanks again,

    Jack O’Connor
