America wins the war in Europe; Hitler is dead. After the dropping of the Atomic Bomb, the Japanese surrender and the most destructive war in human history is over. North Carolinians celebrated with wild abandon, cherishing the victory but mourning the loss of loved ones. The state would never be the same after the war—changing from a backward, poor society into an industrialized state with less poverty, better education, improved health care, and a move away from ruralism to urbanism.

Keywords:   Atomic Bomb, Ruralism, Urbanism, Industrialized
