JP67 Crazy Crate JP 67:  Tuesday, January 18, 2011.

 

Hello Everyone,

Here are a few more items I know you just can't live without.  Some of these items are books and some are magazines. 

This time we're trying to concentrate most of our materials on some of the Southern States:  North and South Carolina and Tennessee.

Let's start out the season with a great big sell-out!
 


CRAZY CRATE  JP 67  BOOK 1:  Fayetteville and Fort Bragg in Vintage Postcards.  By The Cumberland County Historical Society, Inc.  Charleston, SC:  Arcadia Publishing.  2001.  126 pages.   Softcover  (part of the Postcard History Series).  Named for the Marquis de Lafayette in 1783, Fayetteville has for centuries served North Carolina as a hub for settlement, trade, politics, arts, and culture.  The mighty Cape Fear River, in close proximity to the city, has allowed merchants and travelers to visit the city since its earliest establishment, while simultaneously sculpting a beautiful landscape for business and residents.  Postcards reached their apex of popularity during the early twentieth century, around the time that Camp Bragg was established in the Fayetteville community.  Since then, Fort Bragg, as it is now known, has shared a symbiotic relationship with the city, both entities encouraging population, commerce, and quality of life for the other.  This book celebrates the community's storied past by showcasing around 200 postcards from the area.   Price:  $20.00


 

CRAZY CRATE  JP 67  BOOK 2:  Lake Mattamuskee, New Holland and Hyde County.  By Lewis C. Forrest.  Charleston, SC:  Arcadia Publishing. 1999.  128 pages.  Softcover.  (part of the Images of America Series).  Note: the back outside bottom corner has a  crease in it.  Located in the mainland of Eastern North Carolina, HydeCounty is a fascinating blend of beautiful wetlands - with an incredible assortment of wildlife - and rich, sweeping farmlands, which have played the principal role in yielding the economic prosperity for the county.  Lake Mattamuskeet, the center and heart of Hyde County, has enjoyed a long and interesting history, one that has included early American Indian tribes, national business interests, New Deal government projects and many generations of hunters and fishermen. 

Through an impressive collection of photographs, this volume will take you on a visual tour through the history of Lake Mattamuskeet, New Holland, and HydeCounty over the past 100 years.  Because the farmland around the lake was so rich, early businessmen, even back into the colonial days, had the ambition of draining the lake to provide more rich soil acreage and thus, create a profitable real estate venture. In this book, you will see first-hand all the intensive labor, both mental and physical, that went into the lake;from the  first plans for drainage, the huge floating dipper dredge excavating the canals, the creation of the world's largest pumping plant, a company's city planning of New Holland, the introduction of the railroad, the work of the Civilian Conservation Corps in making the lake a waterfowl refuge, and throughout, the farming that has sustained Hyde County over the years.    Price:  $19.99

Each entry on the 1800 S.C. INDEX IS MORE THAN JUST AN INDEX, because it includes the following information: 1.) name of head of household. 2.) County or district. 3.) state of residence.  4.) page number of original census page.  5. complete numerical answer to 12 columns of data.  Sample:  1.) Fuller, John.

This schedule covers all people reported on the 1800 South Carolina Census with the above information.  No bleary-eyed hours spent looking at a microfilm machine, although I do recommend checking it one-time against the original available cnsus schedule available only in Washington, D.C., or a microfilmed copy of the original census schedules now widely available on the internet.
