Abstract:
During the American Revolution, the British came to North Carolina when the Colonial armies crossed the Catawba River and began the retreat to the Dan River. During this time, the arrival of British troops to the Moravian settlements at Bethania, Bethabar, and Salem caused anxiety and heavy losses in livestock, forage, and provisions. To provide for the losses, the acting Commissary A. Knect wrote reimbursement tickets to those residents who supplied the British with supplies.
