The North Carolina Line refers to North Carolina units within the Continental Army. The term "North Carolina Line" referred to the quota of infantry regiments assigned to North Carolina at various times by the Continental Congress

The North Carolina Line refers to North Carolina units within the Continental Army. The term "North Carolina Line" referred to the quota of infantry regiments assigned to North Carolina at various times by the Continental Congress. These, together with similar contingents from the other twelve states, formed the Continental Line. The concept was particularly important in relation to the promotion of commissioned officers.

Separate chapters are devoted to the Battle of Moore's Creek Bridge and the Battle of Guilford Courthouse.

Rankin captures, like no one else, that strangeness that is Scotland at the end of the twentieth century. He has always written superb crime fictio. ut what he’s also pinning down is instant history’. Rankin strips Edinburgh’s polite façade to its gritty skeleton’. The real strength of Ian Rankin’s wor. s that it’s a good deal more than a crime novel. The genre is simply the wrapper in which a complex story of human flaws and frailty is contained’. Rankin proves himself the master of his own milie. here cannot be a better crime novelist writing’. Arguably Scotland’s finest living writer’.

It is not often that I write reviews but felt it necessary to share what I know about this book - I've read it several times. If you are interested in American Revolution history or the role of NC in the American Revolution or in the movements of a particular NC regiment, Mr. Rankin's work is a must have. I have read the section on Valley Forge, Charlestown and Eutaw Springs several times and often go back to it to aide in research of my NC ancestors. Well written. I recommend this book and thank Mr. Rankin for writing it.

Even though I didn't find mention of the family I was seeking in this book, it is a very informative and interesting book. I highly recommend it.

This is a great history of NC & the Revolutionary War, not just the NC Continentasls as the tilte implies. Its valuable for researchers of the era in NC, as Rankin's work is based solidly in the archives. It should be noted however that this is a MILITARY study almost exclusively, and has very little to say about the social aspects of the war in NC.
