1865 – (Civil War) Battle of Goldsborough, North Carolina, Ends

The Battle of Goldsborough came to an end in North Carolina. The 21st, 22nd and 25th Wisconsin Infantry regiments took part as three Union armies totaling 100,000 men captured the city and its railroad facilities. These were then used to supply troops moving north toward Virginia. Union forces occupied Goldsborough until April 10, 1865, the day after Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomattox Courthouse, Virginia.
