The Ante-Bellum Town in North Carolina

Record #:
Ante-bellum towns in the state tended to be small, with only two of the twenty five towns in the 1860 census boasting a population of more than five thousand. The author reviews the reason for a lack of urban development in the state and examines the make-up of these towns from local politics to common social events.
