The Antebellum in North Carolina

The Antebellum South has captured the images of romance and culture as an error of a time past when men were noble and women were graceful.

North Carolina nestled between the southern icons of Virginia and South Carolina found itself relying more in the business of exporting turpentine and shipbuilding materials, rather than cotton. Where there were some plantations, they were few compared to the fertile valley of South Carolina.

Movie Spotlight

When people think of the Antebellum South, they think of the classic "Gone with the Wind".

Gone with the Wind was a unique movie regarding the Civil War, in that it never showed any battle scenes between the North and the South.

The North Carolina State Insect is the Honey Bee.

Honey Bees provide valuable pollination for North Carolina Crops. One good hive of bees can contain approximately 30,000 Bees.
