The Reverend Charles Pettigrew was a blend of many elements: Huguenot-Scot-Irish, Presbyterian and Anglican, frontiersman and urbanite, schoolteacher and aristocrat, common man and Federalist--in other words, American. His career was an excellent example of upward mobility in early America, and the account assumes a significance beyond the North Carolina locale.
