An Outline of North Carolina History.
Easterly, John W., Jr.; Williford, Jo Ann
Designed for teachers and researchers, this comprehensive outline of the history of North Carolina traces the state's history from its earliest Indian occupants to political events occurring during the 1960's. Over 40 chapters are included in the outline. In general, topics deal with expansion and settlement, agriculture and industry, transportation, social order, religious and cultural development, major wars, political development, education, and economic development. Appendices provide researchers with a general overview of types of records located in North Carolina. Appendix 1, an essay entitled "The Nature of the North Carolina State Archives" (by Paul P. Hoffman), provides readers with an understanding of broad categories of materials found there. Appendix II, "Resources of the Division of Archives and History," is divided by chapter headings which correspond to chapters in the outline. Appendix III contains information on those materials located within the individual sections that do not easily fit into one specific time frame or category. (LH)
