James Mcgready: Son Of Thunder, Father Of The Great Revival, John Thomas Scott Jan 1991

James Mcgready: Son Of Thunder, Father Of The Great Revival, John Thomas Scott

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

This dissertation is a biography of James McGready (c.1760-1817), a Presbyterian revivalist minister who lived and worked primarily in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Kentucky, and Indiana. He is best known as the Father of the Great Revival, an evangelical revival that spread throughout the southeastern United States between 1800 and 1805, and the creator of the camp meeting, which soon became an institutional part of American revivalism. Historians have generally described McGready as an innovator in matters of doctrine and revivalist methodology. This study argues that McGready is better understood as a traditionalist. This interpretation follows several recent works that ...


The Architecture Of Slavery: Art, Language, And Society In Early Virginia, Alexander Ormond Boulton Jan 1991

The Architecture Of Slavery: Art, Language, And Society In Early Virginia, Alexander Ormond Boulton

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

Inspired by the concept of culture as expressed in the work of Claude Levi-Strauss, this dissertation traces the roots of modern perceptions of slavery and race by analyzing three sites each of which is associated with a distinct cultural pattern and social ideology. The first, Penshurst in Kent England is described as feudal, organic, vernacular, and popular. The second, Westover in tidewater Virginia is classical, rational, and elite. Thomas Jefferson's Monticello in the Virginia piedmont, the third site, is described as romantic, liberal, and bourgeois. It is only at this third site, the locus for a distinctly modern family ...


Town Development In The Colonial Backcountry: Virginia And North Carolina, Christopher E. Hendricks Jan 1991

Town Development In The Colonial Backcountry: Virginia And North Carolina, Christopher E. Hendricks

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

The backcountry of colonial Virginia and North Carolina saw a process of urbanization during the third quarter of the eighteenth century uniquely shaped by a large-scale migration from colonies to the north, aided by the westward extension of local government. This rapid development did not lead to the creation of a hierarchical economic system of central places, but rather linear networks shaped by the geography of the region. Ironically, this phenomenon occurred in an area of two American colonies usually considered to be devoid of towns.;This dissertation is a study of twenty-eight towns established from 1744 to 1776 in ...


Economic Development And Political Authority: Norfolk, Virginia Merchant-Magistrates, 1736-1800, Thomas Costa Jan 1991

Economic Development And Political Authority: Norfolk, Virginia Merchant-Magistrates, 1736-1800, Thomas Costa

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

Colonial Norfolk, Virginia, developed a more diversified economy than much of the rest of the tobacco-growing Chesapeake. Through a vigorous trade to the West Indies in agricultural products, local merchants prospered, and in 1736 a group of the leading local traders received a charter incorporating Norfolk town as a borough. From that time until the Revolution, through the offices of mayor and aldermen, who corresponded to county magistrates elsewhere in Virginia, the founding merchants and their hand-picked successors governed the town.;Norfolk's merchant-magistrates retained their grip on the town's political and economic life until after the Revolution, despite ...


Artisans In The Carolina Backcountry: Rowan County, 1753-1770, Johanna Carlson Miller Lewis Jan 1991

Artisans In The Carolina Backcountry: Rowan County, 1753-1770, Johanna Carlson Miller Lewis

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

Artisans played an important role in the social and economic life of Rowan County, North Carolina beginning with its creation in 1753. Whether they came individually with their families to obtain land and establish new lives, or they were chosen by the Moravian Church to settle the 100,000 acre Wachovia Tract, all of these artisans were part of the huge wave of immigration to the backcountry of North Carolina which occurred during the third quarter of the eighteenth century.;The development of the artisan population paralleled the growth of Rowan County. In the early 1750s a handful of artisans ...
