"Augmented with a detailed introduction and annotations, The Journal of Peter Horry, South Carolinian fills an important gap with its firsthand accounts of an influential soldier, statesman and planter too often neglected in American historiography."—Lowcountry Companion
"Roy Talbert and Meggan Farish have skillfully edited the private journal of Peter Horry to the benefit of historians and general readers alike. The journal offers fresh perceptions of politics, economics, slavery, and daily life; and the editors' beautifully written introduction and scrupulous annotations of more than 250 people named in the journal persuasively restore Horry's prominence as a Revolutionary warrior, southern planter, and early national politician. This is a major addition to the documentary record."—Charles Joyner, author of Down by the Riverside: A South Carolina Slave Community
