The Progressive Paradigm of Antebellum North Carolina Politics

Record #:
The state's antebellum politics was divided between the Whig and Democratic parties. Scholars have long held that both parties could be considered progressive; first the Whigs in 1836 followed by a shift to Democrats in 1848 when they adopted a more progressive outlook. Dr. Jeffrey offers a new analysis of the state's antebellum politics and when the state's citizens truly got the progressive leadership they desired.
