A planters' republic : the search for economic independence in Revolutionary Virginia by Bruce A Ragsdale( Book )

4 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Confronted by an increasingly restrictive imperial policy and mounting debt with England, Virginians envisioned the development of an independent economy safe from the constraints of parliamentary regulation and the influence of British merchants. Pressed by debt and a declining economy, Virginia planters formed economic associations dedicated to protecting domestic agriculture and promoting local manufactures. Independence, they understood, was as much an economic condition as a political one. In this exciting reinterpretation of Virginia's path to Revolution, Bruce Ragsdale follows one colony's efforts to break economically with England and shows how this movement to become self-sufficient solidified into the political resistance that led to war
