North Carolina trail traces Civil War history





North Carolina hopes that history will draw tourists -- from die-hard Civil War buffs to the merely curious -- to points around the state, each identified by a roadside marker. It's part of the Civil War Trails program, a mission in three states -- Virginia, North Carolina and Maryland -- to mark 700 historic points from the Civil War. And so, by the end of the year, state officials plan to have more than 150 roadside markers in place across North Carolina, forming a trail across the state. They later plan to add 100 more to complete the program.
