 Virginia's Past Seen in Brick and Stone - New York Times
But even among the Queen Anne houses, with their low-pitched roofs and their upstairs dormers that were stifling in summer, the American house had already evolved and was being integrated into the great mansions of Virginia's age of imitative grandeur.
As American as ingenuity, some unsung soul simply made an open corridor between two one-roomed cabins, covered it over for shade, connecting the two rooms, to let in air and have himself a place to sit in the shade, and the dog run, or possum trot central breezeway hall, was born.

When John Carter died in 1742, his wife Elizabeth continued to live in Shirley until her death in 1771 and the house went to her son Charles Carter, who redecorated the house completely in 18 months.
The ownership of the house passed to Hill Carter, the son of Robert Carter, however since Hill was very young, his (wastrel) Uncle William was assisting him- to cover the house's large debts and extravagant lifestyle, auctioning furniture and selling the lead roof for ammunition in the War of 1812.
The foibles of the Carter and Hill families also exhibit how interconnected the great planter families of Virginia were, marrying in order to strengthen the ties of 'lordship' even further.

Robert E. Lee's mother, Anne Hill Carter, was born on Shirley Plantation and Lee himself spent much of his boyhood on the grounds.
The Carter Family who has occupied the house for nine generations traces its roots to King Carter, the tobacco scion of plantation aristocracy.
The fact that King Carter's descendants will take in Yankee trash that will be sowed in the soil to preserve the remnants of that past is a paradox probably worthy of a footnote in the history books or at least deserves an additional line in the brochure for the 50,000 tourists that visit Shirley annually.
