Drawn from the collections in Wilson Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, this website presents a "digital exhibit of a selection of primary source materials that document many of the controversies surrounding the death penalty in North Carolina." The goal of the collection is to present materials that will enable students, teachers, researchers, and the public to view primary sources that will help them explore the history of the death penalty in North Carolina. In addition to the primary sources provided here, the site also provides accompanying texts, timelines, biographies, and a research guide for those who wish to continue to pursue this controversial and important topic.
