Lloyd Johnson, "Naval Stores"

Title

Lloyd Johnson, "Naval Stores"

Description

Lloyd Johnson from Campbell University gives and overview of turpentine farming in “Naval Stores,” on the North Carolina History Project website. He indicates that Naval stores began in the early eighteenth century and lasted all the way through the Civil War. He claims that naval stores were in such high demand in the 1840s-1860s because Britain began importing and technological advances like the railroad aided trading. Johnson indicates that the industry remained on North Carolina’s east coast. Also, he highlights the trend that as naval stores increased, slavery increased. Johnson explains how tough and sometimes mundane the work was for slaves. However, he does mention that most slaves preferred to work in the naval store industry because it was task labor instead of gang labor.
At the end of his article, he lists the sources that he consulted when writing. They are mostly secondary sources. He includes a couple of pictures of turpentine farming in Raleigh, NC.
