The article attempts to reveal the gaps between interpretations and sources which illustrate that Unionists were not the sole perpetrators of violence in North Carolina. It tries to prove how Unionists were persecuted for their political view on unionism. It also explains how contempt for the political position of Unionists led to the establishment of an environment that uses the epithet "Buffalo."
