    schema:description ""As a confirmed Unionist before the outbreak of the war, Vance endorsed secession reluctantly. Elected governor in 1862, he managed to hold together the state, which was divided over supporting the war and having a central government in Richmond. Mobley reveals Vance as a man conflicted by his prewar Unionist beliefs and the necessity to lead the North Carolina war effort while contending with widespread fears created by Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation and such issues as the role of women in the war, lawlessness and desertion among the troops, the importance of the state's blockade runners, and the arrival of Sherman's troops."@en ;
    schema:description "While the governor's temperament and sensitivity to any perceived slight to him or his state made negotiations between Raleigh and Richmond difficult, Mobley shows that in the end Vance fully supported the attempt to achieve Southern independence."--Jacket."@en ;
