Randolph County, North Carolina
Lieferbar innerhalb von 1-2 Wochen
InhaltLocated in the heart of North Carolina, with the Uwharrie Mountains to the west and the Deep River Valley to the east, Randolph County has always been home to powerful opposing forces. Founded in 1779, the county was settled by pacifist Quakers, yet bitter guerrilla warfare later pitted neighbor against neighbor in both the American Revolution and the Civil War. Although Randolph residents refused to secede from the United States in 1861, they sent six companies of troops into Confederate service. The contradictions and ironies of the past have given Randolph a unique history. It is a county of vision, depth, and complexity.
