Holder describes the invasion of the Moravian territory on the northwest corner of the Wachovian tract, by the British forces who were in pursuit of General Nathanael Greene. British soldiers spent two days in the vicinity of Bethania.
Moravian director Count Zinzendorf envisioned a colony \"on a large tract of land on which the Moravians might live undisturbed, having the liberty of excluding all strangers from their settlements.\" This idea of a colony was distinct from other Piedmont settlers like the Scotch-Irish and Germans whom chose to settle on independent and isolated farms. From this colony a number of distinct social and religious behaviors evolved and are reviewed in this article.
