Abstract:
During its formative years following its founding, North Carolina lacked a evolved political, legal, and social structure. In this environment, women were able to assert themselves into the North Carolina legal system, unlike their contemporaries in Europe. Thus women, especially unmarried women, are quite visible in the legal records of colonial North Carolina. As the colony matured physically, economically, socially, and demographically from frontier to colony, the opportunities for women became less and less apparent.

Abstract:
In the 19th century before the Civil War, escaped slaves and their collaborators established escape routes by sea to leave North Carolina. This version of the Underground Railroad in Wilmington and other sea ports were so effective during the 1st half of the century that runaway slaves often ran to the coast instead of heading north to reach freedom through overland routes.
