From Economic Sanctions to Political Separation: The North Carolina Delegation to the Continental Congress, 1774-1776


Abstract:
A look at the contributions of North Carolina delegates William Hooper, Joseph Hewes, and Richard Caswell to the Continental Congress. In 1775, John Penn replaced Caswell and eventually rose to political fame in North Carolina. The delegation made no lasting contributions to the Congress but did vote for independence despite an earlier reluctance.
