Abstract:
Plentiful game birds on Currituck Sound from the 1870s to the 1910s attracted many market hunters. These were hunters who were able to shoot without limit waterfowl which had long been hunted for local consumption. However, with the arrival of railroads and available refrigerator cars, millions of the birds were shipped to Northern markets and restaurants. Daniel recounts a not so well-known parallel to the market hunters--that of hunting selected waterfowl, shorebirds, and songbirds for feathers and plumage for the ladies' hat industry.
