One thought on “160 year-old Documents Intentionally Destroyed in Franklin County, North Carolina

  1. This story infuriates me. The lying, attempts to shift blame, the actions of the State Archives are reprehensible. The County Manager apparently hates historical records. Wonder what that is about.
