The first installment in a series, Cockshutt, head of the Survey and Planning Branch, looks chronologically at changing architectural style and building techniques within the state. The earliest period between the 18th- and early 19th-century, builders relied heavily on wood and later brick. Structures were solid and well-crafted by skilled workmen from the state's abundant resources.
The most effective unit of the state's militiamen was organized under Lieutenant Colonel Henry Dixon. His men must have been drilled continuously based on their discipline in battle. A second noteworthy group of North Carolina militia were the \"over mountain men.\" This unit lacked formal military training but, as a group, functioned as a disciplined and organized regiment.
