~~~ In examining for the first time the reasons for North Carolina's support of the War of 1812, this volume makes an important contribution to North Carolina history. It portrays several figures who have never been studied before, clarifies legends concerning the folk heroes Benjamin Forsyth and Otway Burns, and describes the unique exploits of Johnston Blakeley, the chief naval officer who disappeared on a daring raid in European waters.
