(p.177) Conclusion
Shifting Loyalties

This book concludes by explaining that any in-depth study of a community during the Civil War allows for specific lessons to be drawn, grounded in extensive primary research, which can shed light on larger issues of the conflict, such as the fluid nature of loyalty and nationalism, and the transformative nature of military occupation. This study of the Carteret-Craven region gives us a greater understanding of how participants in military occupation constructed personal and national identities, and offers a more nuanced way of looking at the war. It demonstrates that loyalties and allegiances are complicated issues that can be influenced by many historical, social, and circumstantial factors. This study also reveals that military occupations are not always resented by the people who are occupied, at least not initially.

Keywords:   Civil War, loyalty, nationalism, military occupation, Carteret-Craven region
