March 2015 marks the 150th Anniversary of the Lowry War, an important time in the history of North Carolina and the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina. The Lowry War took place during and after the Civil War in Southeastern North Carolina, home to the Lumbee Indian Tribe of North Carolina. It was essentially the uprising of a small band of Lumbee and their black and white counterparts to resist racial oppression during the time. Now a hero in the minds of many, Henry Berry Lowry led his gang on robin-hood like ventures to protect their people. This story of legend and lore was a defining part of not only North Carolina history, but the history of the United States! This site is an online archive of an exhibit that was displayed in Wilson Library on the campus of UNC Chapel Hill from April 1st, 2015- May 6th, 2015, commemorating the historic event.
