The papers of Eliza Lucas Pinckney (1722–1793) and her daughter Harriott Pinckney Horry (1748–1830) document the lives of two observant and articulate founding-era women who were members of one of South Carolina’s leading families. Their letters, diaries, and other documents span nearly a century (1739–1830) and provide a window on politics, social events, and people of the late colonial and early national periods.

This American Founding Era version of the Pinckney-Horry Papers contains the complete text of our separate standalone edition, but not the rich apparatus of the original. Please refer to our note on this version for further details.
