The Eliza Lucas Pinckney and Harriott Pinckney Horry papers bring together materials of two South Carolina women, Eliza Lucas Pinckney (1722-1793) and Harriott Pinckney Horry (1748-1830). Their letters, diaries, “receipt books,” and other records spanning nearly a century (1739 to 1830) document from the point of view of two observant and articulate women, a mother and a daughter, significant political and social events and people of the late colonial and early national period, and the everyday concerns and activities of managing households and plantations and raising families. In particular, Pinckney’s correspondence illustrates the importance for women of her class of trans-Atlantic friendships and social connections. Horry’s correspondence documents the strength of personal ties between women that linked the elite families of the North and the South to each other even as connections were threatened by disputes over slavery, commercial differences, and political and constitutional conflict. The Digital Edition of the Papers of Eliza Lucas Pinckney and Harriott Pinckney Horry has been published by the University of Virginia Press through its Digital Imprint series on Rotunda, as part of the “Founding Era Collection.”
