This article examines the political landscape of the Lower Cape Fear region of colonial North Carolina, comparing it to the rest of the colony. The Lower Cape Fear region developed quite distinctly from nearby regions as it contained a stable and wealthy ruling class and a large, unruly slave population. The differences between the Lower Cape Fear region and the rest of the colony emphasize the problem with generalizing North Carolina's political environment.
Wood discusses how North Carolina developed from a fledgling spot on the British Empire map to a powerful colonial state.
