"NO PLACE WAS AS CONFUSED AS NORTH CAROLINA; BUT IN THE NORTHERN COLONIES GENTRY ELITES ALSO HAD TROUBLE LIVING UP TO THE CLASSICAL REPUBLICAN MODEL OF LEADERSHIP, AND CHALLENGES TO THEIR AUTHORITY WERE COMMON."
North Carolina to Wood apparently means the extreme eastern part of the colony. Rhode Island, that bloody battleground, gets as many pages in the Index as North Carolina. Pennsylvania gets more than twice the number of page citations. Massachusetts gets three times as many page citations in the Index as North Carolina.
After all this time, a history written as if almost all that mattered took place in the Northeast.
Find me six more recent books that look at the American Revolution as involving more than half a dozen colonies?
