Bath, the first town to be incorporated in North Carolina (1705/6), played a significant role during the state's formative years. From piracy and conflicts with Native Americans to political and regional factionalism, Bath was at the center of the colony's economic and political life. Edward Teach, also known as Blackbeard, may have lived in Bath. This book opens a historic window onto both the town and the state's distant colonial past.
