(p.178) Chapter Eight Aftermath
The Tuscarora War

David La Vere

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter describes how both Col. John “Tuscarora Jack” Barnwell and Col. James Moore, Jr. returned as heroes to South Carolina. Capt. Maurice Moore, the brother of Col. Moore, liked the opportunities he saw in North Carolina and so remained there, planning to make it his home. In fact, while he and his brother were in North Carolina, both invested in real estate, with Capt. Moore purchasing three town lots in the newly built town of Beaufort on Core Sound, one waterfront lot and two back lots. Col. Moore purchased four waterfront lots. They paid £1 current money per lot. 2 In a very short period of time, Maurice Moore was at home in North Carolina and diving headlong into North Carolina politics. Once again, however, war would interrupt the three men's careers.
