Revolutionary leaders in North Carolina struggled to establish political legitimacy for their independence movement, and a key part of that struggle was to present military activity in a certain light and observe certain expected behaviors. Doing so profoundly shaped the nature and course of the war, especially during the notoriously violent “militias’ war” of 1780-82. This talk will explore how North Carolinians perceived war and violence and how those

ideas shaped both strategy and the outcome of the war.
