Published by prolific English cartographer and civil engineer Robert Brazier, the distinctive aesthetic of this map immediately transports the viewer back in time. This period of transition for the state was giving North Carolinians greater access to shipping and railway transportation. While the eastern portion of the state became more cosmopolitan, the western regions remained largely agrarian, with tobacco production being the primary economic driver.
North Carolina had seen numerous battles during the American Revolution, including the pivotal conflict between Continental General Nathaniel Greene and British General Cornwallis. Cornwallis would ultimately be defeated by Greene’s troops at the Battle of Guilford Courthouse and retreat to the coast. Cornwallis would flee the state seeking refuge in Virginia. Eventually, the British General found himself surrounded by Continental and French troops and surrendered to General George Washington, effectively ending the American Revolution. North Carolina would join the United States in 1789, becoming the twelfth state of the Union.
As Railroads increased access in the 19th century, North Carolina saw a period of economic growth and expansion, and the completion of the Wilmington and Raleigh line saw interconnectivity for the coastal region and interior of the state. This line would become critical for the movement of goods throughout the state, especially in the latter portion of the 19th century. This depiction of North Carolina is an authentic piece of cartographical history, and the details allow historians to trace the evolution of the states rich history and culture, developing a sense for what daily life looked like in the early 19th century.
