This Day in North Carolina History "This Day in North Carolina History" book is now available to purchase. Buy the book here! The NC Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, the Office of Archives and History and the State Library bring you a daily blog featuring historically significant events that have occurred throughout our state. 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.
