On Thursday, Nov. 14 at 1 p.m., the Richard H. Thornton Library’s North Carolina Room Specialist Mark Pace will discuss Granville County’s role in history’s largest war. More than 4,000 men and women from Granville County served in the conflict, with 44 local servicemen making the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
The establishment of Camp Butner also had a profound local impact as thousands of Italian and German P.O.W.s were held in captivity at one of North Carolina’s largest military bases, located in Granville County. Learn more about how Camp Butner and World War II affected Granville County and changed it forever.
