North Carolina, a state with divided political allegiances during both the Secession Crisis and the Civil War years, seceded only after President Lincoln called for troops to suppress the states in rebellion. In May 1861 North Carolina became the tenth state to join that rebellion. Early in the Civil War, in August of 1861, Forts Hatteras and Clark on the tip of Hatteras Island were seized by Union troops under the command of General Benjamin Butler. In February 1862, in a campaign that lasted through April of that year, Roanoke Island came under Union control in a top secret amphibious land assault, the first of its kind in military history, led under the command of General Ambrose Burnside in what has become known as the Burnside Expedition. After the capture of Hatteras Inlet by Federal forces and the successful Federal Burnside's Expedition into coastal North Carolina much of coastal North Carolina became occupied by Union forces. The occupation created a situation that presented North Carolinians the opportunity to join either Union or Confederate military forces.
