This chapter describes the alternative societies built by radicals in the borderlands of the Chesapeake. John Jenkins and others created a sanctuary in the Albemarle region of North Carolina. There, Quakers and Levelers were welcome. After William Berkeley suppressed servant rebellions in Virginia, some Quakers found refuge in Somerset County, Maryland. In all these frontier places that governors could not control, radicals deviated from political, social, and cultural norms. But at the same time, the big planters of Tidewater Virginia were making the shift to a slave labor force.
