Historians have frequently glorified eighteenth-century Virginia planters' philosophical debates concerning the that means of yank liberty. yet in accordance with Noeleen McIlvenna, the genuine exemplars of egalitarian political values had fled Virginia's plantation society past due within the 17th century to create the 1st profitable ecu colony within the Albemarle, in present-day North Carolina.

Making their method throughout the nice Dismal Swamp, runaway servants from Virginia joined different renegades to set up a loose society alongside the main inaccessible Atlantic beach of North the USA. They created a brand new neighborhood at the banks of Albemarle Sound, protecting peace with neighboring local american citizens, upholding the egalitarian values of the English Revolution, and ignoring the legislation of the mummy country.

Tapping into formerly unused records, McIlvenna explains how North Carolina's first planters struggled to impose a plantation society upon the settlers and the way these early small farmers, protecting a large franchise and spiritual toleration, steadfastly resisted. She contends that the tale of the Albemarle colony is a microcosm of the larger procedure through which a conglomeration of loosely settled, politically self sufficient groups ultimately succumbed to hierarchical social constructions and elite rule. Highlighting the connection among settlers and local american citizens, this research ends up in a stunning new interpretation of the Tuscarora War.
