In Wachovia, the various trash pits or middens associated with early Moravian inhabitants, as well as the potters' waster dumps, both in Bethabara and Salem, have provided us with significant insights into an incredibly complex eighteenth-and early nineteenth-century earthenware production. Although local antiquarians and collectors have been aware for many years that pottery constituted one of the largest early industries carried on by the Moravians in North Carolina, it was for the most part only the well-kept archival records that testified to this fact. Fine examples of slip-decorated pottery, as wekk as some utilitarian forms, existed in local collections and in the Wachovia Museum in Old Salem, but it was not until the excavations at Bethabara were begun that anyone became aware of the real significance of the tradition in which local potters were working. -- pg. 4.

Members of the Moravian Church who settled in North Carolina were meticulous record keepers, documenting almost every aspect of their day-to-day lives. A significant part of those records is preserved in the form of photographs. Moravian photographers-both professional and amateur-created an enduring legacy by capturing their society and surroundings in faithful detail.

Wachovia was a large tract encompassing the modern Winston-Salem area in North Carolina which was purchased by the Moravian Church from Lord Granville for the purpose of establishing a religious community. The first settlement was made by members of the church in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, in 1753. This volume provides a detailed history of the settlement of the area based on the original Moravian records and manuscripts in the Wachovia Archives. There are some membership lists, enumerations of early settlers, and extensive quotations from original sources. About thirty-five pages at the back of the volume review the history of the Moravian Church, and present lists of major and minor church officials. The volume is attractively illustrated with several maps, diagrams, pen and ink sketches, and photographs. An index to full-names, places and subjects adds to the value of this work.

Excerpt from Records of the Moravians in North Carolina, 1752-1771, Vol. 1 In the Opening volume of the researches which Miss Fries is making into the history of the Moravians in North Carolina we are receiving a valuable contribution, not only to the denomination of Christians which she represents, but to the State itself. The Moravian immigration has always been considered an important element in the settlement of Western Carolina. Along with the Scotch immigrants in the south of the State, the Germans on the Catawba River and in adjacent sections, and the Quakers in neighboring coun ties, the Moravians brought a wholesome moral, social, and religious influence to bear upon the future destinies of our great Commonwealth. In another way also the Moravian settlement was of importance. Owing to their world-wide connections in the Unitas Fratrum, and the scholarly methods of their leaders, they brought with them the habit of keeping precise records of all current events. Copies of these were communicated to their Brethren in other parts of the world, and the originals were carefully deposited in their Archives, now at Winston Salem. In the later colonial years 'of North Carolina's history the contemporary accounts were sparse and unconnected; there were many breaks and gaps in the story of the State. The Moravian Records are perhaps the only consecutive historical account which North Caro lina possesses for those critical years of her development. The Moravians were acute and watchful annalists. They recorded not only the doings of their own religious body, but made note of the state of the weather, incidents of travel, prevailing fashions, features of topography. They mentioned the many distinguished men of the State who visited them, and whose descendants are a valuable element in our population to this day. These accounts are given in Moravian Diaries, in Travel Diaries, and in the Memorabilia, as they are called, which are the accounts of the successive years from 1753 to the present time. Of all this material Miss Fries has made careful and accurate use. The charm and chief value of her work lies in the fact that she allows the Colonial Fathers to speak for themselves. We seem to live in their age of the world, and not in ours. Their trials and difficulties, incident to the Colonial times, their hopes and fears, their pious endeavors, their shrewd observations and estimates of men and things, pass before us in the quaint garb of their own speech.

Excerpt from Records of the Moravians in North Carolina, Vol. 13: 1867-1876 This volume 13 is yet another addition to the publication series Records of the Moravians in North Carolina. The series was begun in 1922 by the North Carolina Historical Commis sion, later named the Division of Archives and History and now the Office of Archives and History. Records of the Moravians has provided scholars, genealogists, and casual readers with firsthand, almost daily accounts of life in North Carolina stretching back to colonial times. These accounts were written by ministers of the Moravian Church, and although they were involved in church affairs, they also had a concern for their neighbors and for events in the wider world. Volume 13 is a close companion to volume 12, since both deal with momentous periods in North Carolina history. Volume 12 covers 1856-1866, which includes the Civil War. Volume 13 encompasses the years 1867-187 6, the aftermath and recovery from the war and Reconstruction. With volume 13 we follow the accommodation of whites and blacks as they adjust to new roles following the end of slavery. The war tattered economy slowly mends, then suffers setback. The two communities of Salem and Winston show renewed growth, and Salem Congregation's Board of Trustees can hardly lay out streets and name them fast enough. A community in eastern Forsyth County bands together to fight the evils of alcohol and incorporates as Kernersville. A new age dawns with the railroad advancing through our fields and forests, that were never wont to have their quiet thus disturbed! And slowly sectional bitterness is set aside, so that with America's centennial in 187 6 the Fourth of July can once again be celebrated.
