Caretakers of a City: The Operation of Raleigh's Board of Aldermen, 1880-1884


Abstract:
Seventeen aldermen and one mayor were responsible for Raleigh's government in 1880. These men dealt with the problems of a growing city because Raleigh's population had doubled during the post-Civil War Reconstruction years. The men were elected from Raleigh's different wards and addressed problems of sanitation, organizing police and firemen, and improving city streets.
