The Journal of John Barnwell,

from The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, vol. VI, no. 1 (July 1898)


Editorial Note


John Barnwell, “Tuscarora Jack,” (ca. 1671-1724) emigrated to South Carolina in 1701, where he became a government official. In response to pleas from North Carolina for assistance during the Tuscarora War, South Carolina appropriated 4,000 and sent an expedition to its northern neighbor. Barnwell commanded the expedition, consisting of some thirty whites and several hundered Yamassee Indians, and they reached the Neuse River near New Bern in January, 1712. The South Carolinians enjoyed considerable success against the Tuscarora insurgents over the next four months. A negotiated peace was reached in April and Barnwell returned home. The peace proved only temporary, with fighting breaking out again a few months later.
