NEW BERN, N.C. (AP) - A historian and re-enactor hopes to represent all soldiers returning home from any war when he walks from New Bern to Durham to mark the journey of troops at the end of the Civil War.

A ceremony will be held Sunday at the Tryon Place Commission House in New Bern to mark the start of historian Philip Brown’s 166-mile walk, often along back roads. Brown will leave Monday from New Bern and stop in Kinston, Seven Springs, Goldsboro, Princeton, Smithfield and Clayton before arriving May 22 in Durham.

The “Soldier’s Walk Home” officially ends May 23 at the Duke Homestead in Durham.
