Internal Improvements and Political Parties in Antebellum North Carolina, 1836-1860


Author(s):
Abstract:
During the Antebellum period in North Carolina, internal improvements for the state were impacted little by party affiliations in the state legislature. Year by year analyses of the state legislature during this period determined that sectionalism was much more important in determining the success of legislation. These analyses demonstrate how difficult it was for multisectional parties to address sectional issues such as internal improvements.
