Excerpt from History of North Carolina, Vol. 2: The Federal Period, 1783 1860

In the present volume the effort has been to emphasize movements rather than events, ideals rather than men, or derly development rather than phenomena of antiquarian in terest. Such an undertaking has required a constant refer ence to contemporary records and the exposition of many movements which have been hitherto neglected or slightly treated. Consequently the volume may leave the impression of a series of monographic studies rather than a conventional narrative history. That perhaps is necessarily the character of the treatment of any subject in which social and economic forces are emphasized.

The year 1836 is the first dividing line in the history of the stat-e after the Revolution. Prior to that date political con ceptions and ideals of social and economic duty bore the stamp of British heritage; thereafter the spirit of American democ racy made rapid progress. The constitutional convention of 1835, the rise of the whig and democratic parties, the estab lishment of a public school system, the foundation of asylum-s, the building of railways through state aid, and reform of the law - these matters, treated in considerable detail, are evi dence of a new order. It has also been my effort to outline the regime they displaced; to the antiquarian it has the greater interest, whereas to him who prefers life in action the epoch after 1836 will always make a stronger appeal.
