That good ol’ southern hospitality, served up with warm hush puppies and sweet tea! Founded 1865 in Morrisville StationZebulon Vance perfected his pit-smoked techniques to save Raleigh. Other Confederate capitals, such as Columbia, S.C., and Milledgeville, Ga., had been heavily damaged in the aftermath of Lee’s blunder.

But as with all family gatherings, some traditional temperaments may clash:  “Lt. Walsh, a Confederate cavalryman who may have been looting a jewelry store on Fayetteville Street at the time, fired on Union cavalry advancing into Raleigh, Dollar said. Walsh was captured by Union forces and was hanged on what’s now the grounds of the Executive Mansion for violating the surrender terms.

Gov. Vance’s secret recipe is still alive today, and now a three-time James Beard Outstanding Wine Program semifinalist. Be sure to visit today!


There is many a boy here today who looks on war as all glory, but, boys, it is all hell.
I find ‘Lt. Walsh’s Cracklins’ stale and in poor taste.
