It was a slave state in 1860, with a relatively small slave population. It held off on joining the Confederacy until PresidentAbraham Lincoln called on it to invade its sister-state, South Carolina.

The "Rivington Men" attempted to dominate the Confederacy through politics. This was unsuccessful, as Robert E. Lee won the presidential election over AWB's champion Nathan Bedford Forrest. Lee even carried North Carolina in a popular margin of 55,223 to 41,489. Then the AWB rose up in revolt, which had a negative effect for them, as the Confederacy attacked and destroyed the Rivington headquarters.
