This western county of North Carolina was renamed in 1822 after Revolutionary War hero William Lee Davidson, a prominent resident and noted Continental General. Davidson was born in Pennsylvania, and his family moved to Rowan County, North Carolina in 1750. His military service began in 1775 in the 1st Rowan County in 1775, and he fought the British bravely until he died in the Battle of Cowan's Ford. The battle took place in 1781 and led to the eventual surrender of the British Army in Yorktown. The engagement is marked by the Continental armies' style of fighting, which wore the British down through a series of small conflicts. Davidson's body was recovered, and he was buried in the Hopewell Presbyterian Church north of Charlotte.
1890 was a time of economic prosperity in North Carolina with tobacco exports driving the boom. These maps are a valuable tool for genealogists and historians to develop a picture of American life in the late 19th century. This unique depiction of the county highlights notable buildings as well as churches and details Yadkin College.
North Carolina had recovered from the destruction of the Civil War at this time and was rapidly developing. Lexington, the county seat, was the home to the first silver mine in the United States, and the discovery of gold in the area in 1799 sparked the famed American gold rush, which would spur on the settlement of the vast American west. This distinct illustration is an authentic piece of cartographical history.
