Abstract:
David Cox Jr. of Hertford, collector of Tar Heel currency, maintains that, “North Carolina issued far more paper money than any other state in the union.” His collection of N.C. printed currency contains money, scrip, and bank notes from the Revolutionary and Civil wars and has been displayed at the Smithsonian. N.C. currency began circulating in 1712 but was prohibited in 1786 upon joining the union. Many counties and municipalities issued Confederate money between 1861 and 1864.

The river is in danger from both ends due to rapid development around Blowing Rock and Boone, and from efforts of the Appalachian Power Company of Virginia seeking to permit damming.
