Mecklenburg County, Virginia and Warren County, North Carolina are across the State Line from each other. Prior to the War of Northern Agression, both of these counties were the most influential in their respective States due to the fact of the size and wealth of their tobacco plantations. Both Counties were had a lot of influence socially and politically. Both supported the Confederate cause with their wealth and when the South loss the war, both states lost their wealth and political clout. Due to their geographic locations, the climate and the rich soil, they were very productive when tobacco became King and exported much leaf to England. After the war, many families were unable to support the large expanded family and many moved west.
