Searching for Land and God: The Pietist Migration to North Carolina in the Late Colonial Period

Record #:
This article examines the migration of Moravian families from the northeast United States, into Wachovia settlements in North Carolina during the mid-18th century. This movement stemmed from a desire for more land but also from the importance of religion and common places of worship. Settlement in North Carolina was accompanied by settlement from European immigrants and other Moravian settlements in America.
