Benjamin Smith: Brunswick County General and North Carolina Governor, 1810-1811

Record #:
Benjamin Smith was governor of North Carolina from 1810 to 1811. A prominent resident of the Lower Cape Fear region, Smith owned several plantations in Brunswick County. Little attention has been paid to Smith by historians as his short gubernatorial has been viewed as powerless. When examined, his tenure in office exposes the difficulties that governors are under during the early 19th century.
