About This 2007 Online Edition of Foote's Sketches of North Carolina, Historical and Biographical, Illustrative of the Principles of a Portion of Her Early Settlers:

William Henry Foote wrote his 1846 Sketches of North Carolina in answer to an assignment to gather the history of the Presbyterian church in North Carolina. His emphasis is on the history of the Scotch-Irish and on the beginnings of democracy in America. His tome is hardly a religious history although it is a record of the growth of churches in North Carolina. It is rather a history of a people vying for subsistence, equality, and self-government in a new and strange land. Foote deals with the Revolutionary War and the personalities involved, but since he published before the Civil War, the War between the States is not mentioned. Some of the most interesting stories to come out of the Revolutionary War were recounted originally in Foote.

In this online edition we have tried to faithfully reproduce the book in a freely available, fully searchable online format readable in popular browsers. Clearly marked annotations and internal links have been added where they seemed useful and appropriate and can often be accessed by holding the mouse over the highlighted section. Editor's notes on misspellings, etc., are inserted inside curly brackets: {}.

We welcome constructive comments on this edition as well as on our other publications.
