I've referenced it many times at the NC Archives or in one library or another. But did you know that it's online now?? WooHoo!
Maybe it's been online for a long time and I'm just now seeing it. But it's new to me...so it might be new to you, too!
It is on the Library of Congress site, as well as others, but the link I use most often is in the East Carolina University's Digital Collections.
Just a bit of North Carolina trivia:
- John Bryan Grimes was NC Secretary of State for 22 years.
- His daddy was Confederate Major General Bryan Grimes.
- His granddaddy was a Congressman.
- Before he entered NC politics as a Democrat, he was a tobacco farmer.
- He grew up on his family's plantation in Pitt County.
God bless Mr. Grimes. He sure left us researchers a true gem.
