The following resources include digitized postcards and photographs depicting images of Civil War and Confederate Monuments, plus some dedication ceremonies:
North Carolina Postcards is a project of the North Carolina Collection, located in historic Wilson Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The North Carolina Collection Photographic Archives holds more than 12,000 North Carolina postcards contained primarily in two collections: the North Carolina Postcard Collection and the Durwood Barbour Collection of North Carolina Postcards.
The North Carolina Collection Photographic Archives (NCCPA) has developed a digitization program specifically designed to provide researchers access to NCCPA materials that have been digitized in recent months and years. This new feature is now available with finding aids for selected collections in the NCCPA. Clicking on a collection name will take you to that collection's finding aid (a descriptive guide to the collection's contents). To search for other NCCPA collections or to gain access to other digitized collections in UNC-Chapel Hill's University Library, please use the online catalog.
The North Carolina Digital Heritage Center is a statewide digitization and digital publishing program housed in the North Carolina Collection at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The Digital Heritage Center works with cultural heritage institutions across North Carolina to digitize and publish historical materials online. The Digital Heritage Center provides libraries, archives, museums, historical societies, and other cultural heritage institutions with the opportunity to promote and increase access to their collections through digitization.

Newspapers, both state papers and national level, are invaluable for research on this topic. North Carolina newspapers can be accessed in person at UNC's Wilson Library.
