Written by Glenn H. Todd in 1965, Digital NC has made available The Immortal Nick Arrington with the help of our partner Braswell Memory Library. Born on December 25th, 1806, Nicholas Williams Arrington would be appointed to the office of Chief Deputy Sheriff of Nash County at the age of 21. He would inherit a vast amount of wealth in money, land, and property after the deaths of his father and brothers. The book written by Todd does a deep dive into the life of Arrington and his many adventures throughout the South before the Civil War in America.
