The article traces the contributions of Wilmington-area lawyer Archibald Maclaine to the development of the politics of moderation in North Carolina. It is noted that the conflict between Patriots and Loyalists created much difficulties for North Carolina's military and civilian leaders to restore order and stability in the state. According to the author, the story of Maclaine illustrates the difficulties faced by men who supported independence but rejected discriminatory treatment of Loyalists in the 1780s.
