Caldwell remembers, Markers placed PDF Print
Sunday, 16 December 2007 19:00

Two Civil War markers were placed in Caldwell County Friday. Part of the North Carolina Civil War Trails project, the markers were installed in an effort to encourage education and discussion.

The North Carolina Division of Travel, Film and Sports Development commissioned the marker with cooperation from both the Caldwell County Chamber of Commerce and the Caldwell County Historical Society.

A marker at the corner of Main Street and Harper Avenue in Lenoir details Union General George Stoneman’s 1865 raid through western North Carolina. The church onsite, St. James Episcopal, served as a prison for about 900 people, including Confederate soldiers.

The second marker was placed in the Happy Valley community near a former mill.

The chamber and historical society are accepting donations to cover maintenance for the markers. A formal unveiling will be scheduled at a later date. For more information, visit www.civilwartrails.com.
