The Papers of Eliza Lucas Pinckney and Harriott Pinckney Horry Digital Edition (Web Resources) [show prizes]
Title: The Papers of Eliza Lucas Pinckney and Harriott Pinckney Horry Digital Edition
Author: Harriott Pinckney Horry
Author: Eliza Lucas Pinckney
Abstract: The papers of Eliza Lucas Pinckney (1722–1793) and her daughter Harriott Pinckney Horry (1748–1830) document the lives of two observant and articulate founding-era women who were members of one of South Carolina’s leading families. Their letters, diaries, and other documents span nearly a century (1739–1830) and provide a window on politics, social events, and people of the late colonial and early national periods. They richly detail the daily life of maintaining family ties and managing households and plantations. Pinckney’s correspondence illustrates the importance of women’s social connections and transatlantic friendships. Horry’s correspondence documents the strength of personal ties that linked the elite families of the North and the South to each other even as connections were threatened by disputes over slavery, commercial differences, and political and constitutional conflict.
