This is Volume II of the classic work that tells the story of the Revolutionary War in North Carolina. In 1854, and again in 1856, Rev. Eli Washington Caruthers published a compilation of stories, gathered over the course of many years, that spotlighted the bravery, sacrifices and viciousness that were a part of life for North Carolinians during the Revolutionary War. From the actions of Governor William Tryon in suppressing the Regulator rebellion, through the first Patriot victory against British forces at Moores Creek, to the depredations of Tory terror David Fanning and the climactic battle at Guilford Courthouse, the Old North State was the scene of some of the most pivotal episodes in the struggle for American independence. Long out of print, this newly illustrated edition tells the stories of the men and women who paid for American liberty with their blood and sacrifice. Caruthers' two volumes on the Revolutionary War in North Carolina are the stories of ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events. They are the stories of men like John Grady, John Ashe, Andrew Balfour and countless others who gave their all for the cause of freedom, and in doing so showed the character that has been a benchmark for patriotic sacrifice ever since.
