I think we know what they were thinking: “There’s something in here that would upset the lives of important people.”
The blogger suggests it was post civil war land deeds that showed title to land that was later “appropriated” by whites whose descendants are rich and powerful.

1. What the hell?!

(It’s conceivable that this was nothing more than bureaucratic stupidity, but I won’t trust assurances to that effect by the NC powers that be.)

2. The specifics have not stayed with me, but more than once I’ve read about malfeasance in NC under its Republican governor and legislature.

The Justice Department should get on this stat. There’s a possibility that recently freed NC slaves were illegally dispossessed of their property during Reconstruction. There’s a possibility that the records in question were destroyed to suppress criminal evidence. There are obstruction-of-justice and civil-rights, and perhaps more, aspects to this.

Speaking as a limited-government conservative, I repeat: the feds should get on this immediately.

It would not surprise me if this is somehow tied back to Pope or the Salem Communications founder Stuart Epperson or their friends.

Or, it could just be a bureaucratic mistake. However, given the activity of genealogical and historical societies, especially in the original 13 colonies, even the greenest department of archives employee would know the importance of the documents.

An interesting question is why the room with the documents was “sealed” off to begin with.

Aint that interesting and tragic beyond belief.

Sure sparks the curiosity. Why! Why? Why!!???!!!!!!!!

As a person that has spent years doing genealogical work, this made me feel physically ill.
