Caswell County is a county located in the U.S. state of North Carolina. It is part of the  Greensboro-High Point Metropolitan Statistical Area. As of the 2010 census, the population was 23,719.[1] Its county seat is Yanceyville.[2]

History

Early history

The area was first inhabited by Native Americans possibly as long as 12,000 years ago.[3] The tribes encountered by early Spanish explorers included the Occaneechi and other Siouan-speaking groups.[4]

In 1665, Charles I of England gave all of what is now North Carolina and South Carolina (named for him) to eight of his noblemen. Caswell County was originally part of the land grant belonging to Edward Hyde, 1st Earl of Clarendon.[5]

Settlement by Protestant immigrants of English and German descent began in the mid-17th century and continued into the 19th century. The majority of the initial settlers were yeoman farmers who owned their own small farms, and few had any slaves. Slaveholders were primarily planters in the area who specialized in growing tobacco as a cash crop on large plantations.[6] The gradual emphasis on tobacco production corresponded with significant increases in the number of planters and slaves in the region.[7]

Caswell County was formed from a northern portion of Orange County in 1777. The newly formed county was named for Richard Caswell who was the first governor of North Carolina after the Declaration of Independence in 1776. Caswell was also a delegate at the First and Second Continental Congresses and a senior officer of militia in the Southern theater of the  Revolutionary War. He led the Provincial Congress' force at the Battle of Moore's Creek Bridge in 1776.[8]

During the prelude to the Battle of Guilford Courthouse in 1781, Lord Cornwallis brought his British forces through Caswell County in pursuit of General Greene, whose "retreat", called the "Race to the Dan", was a calculated ploy. Greene's objective was to extend Cornwallis far beyond his supply base in Camden, South Carolina so that his fighting power would be significantly diminished.

After taking command of the Southern theater in 1780, Cornwallis raided plantations in the Carolinas and Virginia and freed thousands of slaves, with many gaining safe haven as loyalists assisting the British army.[9][10] As he pursued Greene to the Dan River, his troops marched through the Camp Springs area, through Leasburg, which was the first county seat, and through the Red House Church area in Semora, where the fresh grave of Reverend Hugh McAden was vandalized.[11]

By the war's end in 1783, Caswell County had made significant contributions in personnel and materiel. However, it was only marginally a site of actual combat. County natives famous for their Revolutionary War contributions include Lieutenant Colonel Henry ("Hal") Dixon, Captain John Herndon Graves, Dr. Lancelot Johnston, and Starling Gunn.[12]

Nine years after the war in 1792, the eastern half of Caswell County became Person County. After the division, the seat of Caswell County's government was moved to a more central location. The community hosting the new county seat first was called Caswell Court House. In 1833, the name was changed to Yanceyville.[13]

Political leaders

Caswell County has produced notable political leaders throughout its history. These include Donna Edwards, John H. Kerr, John W. Stephens, Anderson Mitchell, Romulus Mitchell Saunders, Archibald Debow Murphey, and Bartlett Yancey, Jr.

At one time it was said that all successful North Carolina legislation had to make its way through Caswell County legislators. For example, Bartlett Yancey was Speaker of the North Carolina Senate from 1817 to 1827, and during part of this time, Romulus Mitchell Saunders was Speaker of the North Carolina House of Commons.

Civil War period

In May of 1861, North Carolina joined the Confederacy, which by then was five weeks into the war against the Union.[14] One of the first acts of the Caswell County Court after secession in July 1861 was to levy a tax "to furnish the [military] volunteers in the county and to support the indigent families of the same."[15] A motion was granted to appoint an appropriations committee for this purpose. The county had already spent $5000 ($154,372.73 in 2021 inflation-adjusted dollars) preparing for the war and authorized obtaining a loan of $10,000 ($308,745.45 in 2021 inflation-adjusted dollars) from either the Bank of Yanceyville or the State Bank of North Carolina, which had a branch in Milton.[16][17]

Residents of the county soon adapted to the realities of war. Men quickly volunteered for service, and by early summer 1861, six companies were in training camps. Later conscription acts took into service some who were less eager to fight.[18]

After four years of bloodshed, the Civil War effectively ended with  Robert E. Lee's surrender at Appomattox in April 1865.[19] The war devastated the South, including and especially Caswell County.[20] In its aftermath, the pattern of life completely changed in the region. For African Americans, it meant freedom from slavery, a brief period of jubilation, and the resumption of hard work coupled with discrimination.[21] For former slaveholders, it meant the loss of the familiar plantation lifestyle and subsequent economic uncertainty. The previously poor small farmer fell into even deeper poverty.[22]

Industrialization and growth

Between the turn of the 19th century and the Civil War, Caswell County witnessed an unprecedented period of industrialization and growth. Around 1830 it began what is called the "Boom Era." During this time, the county saw the development of various flour and lumber mills. It saw the creation of the Milton Cotton Factory and the furniture output of Thomas Day. It saw the Yarbrough Foundry and the Yanceyville Silk Company. It was in Caswell County that the Slade family discovered the bright-leaf tobacco curing process in 1839, which revolutionized the tobacco industry.[23][24]

The tobacco-based economy, and the industries supported by tobacco, enriched many locals. The newly wealthy built impressive homes and sent their children to private academies.[25] Streets were improved and were given names by 1841. Yanceyville became sufficiently wealthy to have its own bank, the Bank of Yanceyville. Fewer banks in the state were better capitalized.[26] The majority of the populace did not share in this wealth, however, as slavery was the basis for much of the prosperity.

By 1856, tobacco overshadowed all other forms of enterprise in the county. Due to the growth of the tobacco industry, which created an expanding need for manual labor, the local slave population grew to 9,355 in 1860 from a total of 4,299 in 1810 and 2,788 in 1800. The white population declined from a peak of 8,399 in 1850 to 6,587 in 1860. This was due to the western migration of smaller farmers who were unable to compete with the larger planters.[27] In 1858, at the tail end of the opulent Boom Era, the construction of Caswell County Courthouse began. It was completed during the onset of the Civil War in 1861.

After the war during the Reconstruction era, the area faced in contrast a decreased standard of living, abandoned land, and insufficient public revenue for services that governments ordinarily provided. In 1870, the Ku Klux Klan began a campaign of intimidation and murder to prevent the area's freed slaves from voting. Wyatt Outlaw's lynching and John W. Stephens's assassination culminated with Governor William W. Holden imposing martial law during the Kirk-Holden War. Confusion, terror, looting, and disorder ensued. Many of the county's leading citizens were arrested for suspected Klan membership by the governor's forces.[28]

When Democrats regained control of the state legislature in 1871, they impeached Holden and removed him from office. He was the first governor in American history to suffer such a fate. The Democratic Party subsequently established white supremacy in 1876. When federal troops left the next year, ending Reconstruction, the stage was set for the passage of Jim Crow laws. Consequently, African Americans went from being free to being economically and socially restricted.[29]

In the years that followed, Caswell County continued its dependence on tobacco and was reluctant to diversify agriculturally. The Second Industrial Revolution in varying degrees passed it by. Other than a few tobacco mills, there was an absence of industry and no railroad. Its population significantly diminished until 1910 when an upward trend began. By then Yanceyville had phone service.[30] In the 1920s, the   Caswell County Board of Education initiated school improvement projects.[31] Nevertheless, it took the Great Depression of the 1930s and its New Deal programs, World War II, and the boom years of the 1950s to substantially reawaken the county.[32]

The economic upswing of the 1950s saw new businesses entering the area. This included the opening of a meatpacking operation in 1956 in Caswell County's southwest corner. The county also attracted textile mills to Yanceyville, which provided needed jobs. Such growth helped the county broaden its tax base, which had been mainly tied to agriculture previously.[33]

During the last half of the 20th century and into the 21st, the economy of Caswell County continued to modernize and experience growth away from traditional tobacco. Entrepreneurship also increased due to its business properties and land primed for development.[34]

Civil rights movement

By the end of the 1960s, Caswell County's public schools were beginning to fully  integrate. A decade and a half earlier in 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Brown v. Board of Education that  racial segregation in public schools was unconstitutional. In later arguments before the Court in 1955 known as Brown II, school districts were given the ambiguous order to desegregate "with all deliberate speed."[35] Like many school boards in  the South, the   Caswell County Board of Education interpreted the Court's ambiguity in a manner that served to delay, obstruct, and slow the process of integrating Black and white students.[36]

The Board of Education's resistance to integration was further emboldened by North Carolina's passage of the Pupil Assignment Act in 1955. The legislation gave local school boards full school placement authority. Driven by the act's power, "all deliberate speed", and the prevailing anti-integration sentiment of the white community, the school district continued assigning children to schools in a segregated manner.[37]

In response to these developments, a contingent of 15 African American parents began protesting school placement on the basis of race. They sent petitions to the school district in 1955 that the board then ignored.[38] This prompted a series of legal actions. The NAACP subsequently filed a  federal lawsuit in 1956 petitioning for integration to begin at previously all-white schools in Caswell County.[39]

In August 1957, 43 students and their families, many of whom were plaintiffs in the federal court case, applied for admission to public schools that were closer to their homes than the segregated ones they had been assigned.[40] The school board denied their applications and continued to reject them through 1962.[41] Nevertheless, the integration lawsuit kept moving forward.

In December 1961, U.S. District Court Judge Edwin M. Stanley ruled that two brothers, Charlie and Fred Saunders, could promptly attend Archibald Murphey Elementary School, a now-closed formerly all-white school near  Milton. When the new semester began in January, however, they did not present themselves for enrollment. The Ku Klux Klan had sent a threatening letter to the Saunders family not that long before.[42]

According to the father's affidavit, the KKK's threats caused him to miss a board hearing on school reassignment that the judge had ordered in August 1961 prior to his final judgment. In his sworn statement, Saunders also conveyed that he would be agreeable to a transfer if his children's protection at Murphey Elementary could be assured.[43]

A year later in December 1962, Judge Stanley found that the school district had been improperly administering the Pupil Assignment Act. He told the school boards of Caswell County and the city of  Durham to allow every schoolchild complete freedom of choice in school assignments.[44] On January 22, 1963, 16 African American schoolchildren enrolled in four of the county's previously all-white schools.[45]

On their first day of school, a group of white men harassed and threatened one of the parents, Jasper Brown, who was a local civil rights  leader and farmer. He was pursued and menaced by the men as he drove home. After a rear-end collision, the other vehicle's driver emerged with a firearm. Fearing for his life, Brown shot and wounded two of the men in an exchange of fire before turning himself in to police.[46][47] Due to the circumstances, Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy was soon informed of the incident.[48]

Several months later, Brown was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon and served 90 days in jail. While awaiting trial, white men bombed his yard.[49] His four children and the 12 others who integrated the county's schools were physically threatened and emotionally abused throughout the semester. Despite requests from the NAACP and concerned families, no police protection was provided. Furthermore, the Board of Education refused to arrange school bus transportation.[50][51]

By late 1967, only 57 African American children out of a Black student population of approximately 3,000 were attending integrated public schools in Caswell County.[52][53] While there had been some faculty integration, the less than two percent enrollment rate in essence preserved segregation. The school district's integration plan had not fostered sufficient desegregation.[54]

The Board of Education's "freedom of choice" plan put the onus of integration on individual African American students and parents, who had to opt to cross the color line themselves.[55] If they did so, they faced social stigma, severe discrimination, and other hardships. Consequently, many families, though supportive of integration efforts, chose to keep their children safe in valued Black schools such as Caswell County High School.[56][57]

The school district's low integration rate resulted in the U.S. Office of Education citing the county in 1966 as one of seven in the state that were not in compliance with its civil rights  Title IV guidelines. The bureau began taking steps to cut off federal funding.[58] The school district was not in full compliance with federal integration standards until 1969.[59] In that year, the Board of Education implemented a plan for complete desegregation after Judge Stanley ordered the school district in August 1968 to integrate starting in the 1969-1970 school year.[60][61][62]

When school integration and consolidation subsequently occurred, Bartlett Yancey High School became the only public high school in the county after Caswell County High School's closure in 1969.[63] The old high school building's educational use was promptly reconfigured. The new integrated facility was named N. L. Dillard Junior High School in honor of the former high school's principal. Integrated elementary schools were established based on zoning.[64]

Depiction in the arts

Writers including Alex Haley and artists such as Maud Gatewood have commented on Caswell County's history in their work. The county was briefly referenced in Haley's 1977 television miniseries Roots. It was cited as the location of champion cock fighter Tom Moore's (Chuck Connors) plantation.[65] When Gatewood designed the county seal in 1974, she added two large tobacco leaves as a symbol of the crop's long prominence in the area.[66]

Geography

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 428 square miles (1,110 km2), of which 425 square miles (1,100 km2) is land and 3.3 square miles (8.5 km2) (0.8%) is water.[67] The Dan River flows through a part of the county. Hyco Lake is an important water source.[68]

Economy

The economy of Caswell County is rooted in agriculture, which continues to modernize and experience growth away from traditional tobacco. There has been a rich history of entrepreneurship in the county due to its business properties and land primed for development.[75]

Caswell County produces agricultural products such as tobacco, soybeans, corn, wheat, oats, barley, hay, alfalfa, beef cattle, sheep, swine, and chickens. Manufactured goods include clothing, textiles, and electronics. The county also produces several minerals, such as mica, microcline, beryl, graphite, corundum, and soapstone.[76]

Caswell County is also home to two industrial parks: Pelham Industrial Park located in Pelham and Caswell County Industrial Park located in Yanceyville.[77] CoSquare, a coworking space that offers several business possibilities for entrepreneurs, is located in Yanceyville's downtown historic district.[78]

The county benefits from its proximity to the greater Piedmont Triad area, Danville, Virginia, and the Research Triangle. Residents have access to a host of goods, services, attractions, and employment in the region. Caswell County receives economic activity in kind from these neighboring areas.

Government and politics

Caswell County's government consists of 28 departments, an elected board of commissioners, a clerk to the board, and an appointed county manager.[79] The county has additional central administration, Cooperative Extension, E-911, and Juvenile Crime Prevention Council staff.[80] Caswell County is a member of the Piedmont Triad Regional Council.[81]
