The term "Tar Heel" has been applied to North Carolinians and their state for more than 150 years. The author throughly discusses the origin and early application of the Tar Heel nickname during the Civil War. This well-illustrated booklet includes numerous quotations from documents of the period that chronicle the transition of the nickname from one of disparagement to one of pride.
