SCHOOL HISTORY OF NORTH
CAROLINA, FROM 1584 TO THE
PRESENT TIME.
BY JOHN W. MOORE. REVISED AND
ENLARGED.PREFACE TO REVISED
EDITION.
In the publication of a fourteenth edition it seems
proper that something should be said as to
changes made in this work. At a session of the
North Carolina Board of Education, held November
22d, 1881, it was resolved that "the Board
expressly reserve to itself the right to require
further revisions" in Moore's School History of
North Carolina, the second edition of which was
then adopted for use in the public schools.
Conforming to this requirement of the State Board
of Education, the author has diligently sought aid
and counsel in the effort to perfect this work. To
Mrs. C. P. Spencer, E. J. Hale, Esq., of New York,
and Hon. Montford McGehee, Commissioner of
Agriculture, the work is indebted for many valuable
suggestions, but still more largely to Col. W. L.
Saunders, Secretary of State, who has aided
assiduously not only in its revision, but in its
progress through the press.
The teacher of North Carolina History will be
greatly aided in the work by having a wall map of
North Carolina before the class, and to this end the
publishers have prepared a good and accurate
school map, which will be furnished at a special lowprice.

HINTS TO TEACHERS.
It is well known that any subject can be more
thoroughly taught when both the eye and the mind
of the pupil are used as mediums for imparting the
knowledge; and the teacher of "North Carolina
History" will find a valuable help in a wall map ofthe State hung in convenient position for reference
while the history class is reciting.
Require the pupils to go to the map and point out
localities when mentioned, also places adjoining;
trace the courses of the rivers which have a
historical interest, and name important towns upon
their banks. A good, reliable wall map of North
Carolina can he procured at a moderate price from
the publishers of this work.
It has been deemed proper to make the chapters
short, that each may form one lesson. At the close
of each chapter will be found questions upon the
main points of the lesson. These will furnish
thought for many other questions which will
suggest themselves to the teacher. There are
many small matters of local State history which can
be given with interest to the class, from time to
time, as appropriate periods are reached. These
minor facts could not be included in the compass
of a school book, but a teacher will be helped by
referring occasionally to "Moore's Library History of
North Carolina."
Inspire your pupils with a spirit of patriotism and
love for their native State. A little effort in this
direction will show you how easily it can be done. In
every boy and girl is a latent feeling of pride in
whatever pertains to the welfare of their native
State, and this feeling should be cultivated and
enlarged, and thus the children make bettercitizens when grown. The history of our State is
filled with events which, told to the young, will fix
their attention, and awaken a desire to know more
of the troubles and noble deeds of the people who
laid the foundation of this Commonwealth.
The Appendix contains the present "Constitution of
North Carolina." Then follows a series of
"Questions on the Constitution," prepared
expressly for this work by Hon. Kemp P. Battle, LL.
D., President of the University of North Carolina.
This is an entirely new and valuable feature in a
school book, and contains an analysis of our State
government. This is just the information that every
citizen of North Carolina ought to possess, and
teachers should require all their students of this
history to read and study the Constitution and
endeavor to answer the questions thereon.
No State in the Union possesses a record of nobler
achievements than North Carolina. Her people
have always loved liberty for themselves, and they
offered the same priceless boon to all who came
within her borders; and it was a full knowledge of
this trait of our people which made Bancroft say
"North Carolina was settled by the freest of the
free."
