General Petition Information

Abstract:Sixty-three citizens of Lincolnton seek a repeal of the laws passed in 1829 and 1830 concerning "the liability of certain hands in the town of Lincolnton to work on roads." They purport the exemption of "all slaves living in said town, but working a piece of land out of the limits of the Corporation" from doing said road work removes "the whole effective force in Said town, by which the numerous streets in said town should be kept in good order."
