A History of Richmond County, North Carolina 1750-1900

WRITTEN BY JOHN HUTCHINSON

This book is for those who are curious about the lively history of our patch of Carolina Sandhills. It is the result of a desire to share the flavor of Richmond County people, their times and their conflicts, all of which stir our imaginations.

Ours is a county with a remarkable past.  Settled early by restless souls, Richmond County became one of North Carolina's economic leaders after the American Revolution. Dozens of families grew wealthy growing cotton--though the slaves who toiled in their fields twice plotted revolts.

The author has attempted to capture the personalities and conflicts of the first century and half of Richmond County's history.  He has succeeded in presenting our forbears as the colorful characters they were, and showing that while background changes, human nature is as consistent as it is unpredictable.  Relive the exciting moments of Richmond County's past in this historic volume.
