From the July 2016 Our State Magazine (North Carolina) by Eleanor Spicer Rice.
"Wherever you go in this Wayne County city, you'll find yourself crossing railroad tracks."
Very true. of course, a big reason for Goldsboro's existence involved railroads. It made the city a target for General Sherman's Army during the Civil War when it was also part of the important Wilmington and Weldon Railroad which kept Lee's Army supplied.
Goldsboro is my home city, where I was born back 65 years ago. So, it is special to me. My family has lived there since around 1900 and up until the end of last year, were in the same house since the 1920s.
