 The Flower Swift Militia Company   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The Chestnut Creek community was probably fairly self-sufficient and almost everyone farmed and had a moderate amount of wealth.
Some members of the Swift company did refuse to fight before 1779 and their names (David Fulton, Samuel Cox, Jeremiah Clonch) appear in the records as such in September, 1779 which is coincidentally when the Swift company was formed.
There is no evidence that Swift's company, as such, participated in the major battles in North Carolina, but several individual members of the company did go to North Carolina and joined with old neighbors there in the American army.

 Swift Creek water quality still a concern   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Many environmentalists remain concerned about development along the Swift Creek River basin despite a compromise reached in the legislature that protects the upper two-thirds of the river.
The compromise upgrades the environmental classification for the upper two-thirds of the Swift Creek watershed to an outstanding resource water zone – the state's highest ranking – and adds restrictions to any future structural development.
The lower third of the Swift Creek watershed from Red Oak Road east to the Tar-Pamlico River, just north of Tarboro, was not upgraded in the compromise, which disappointed many environmentalists.

This year House Bill 566 (HB 566) was passed in the NC House (without even going through the Environment Committee of which one of the bill's two cosponsors is the chair) to overturn the designation and strip the protections from this special stream.
The ORW designation applied to Swift Creek prohibits new wastewater discharges in the watershed; prohibits new discharging landfills in the watershed; requires that new underground storage tanks be double-hulled if close to the creek; and requires that new developments in the watershed control stormwater runoff.

It is believed that there are two competing objectives that affect land use patterns and development standards within the Swift Creek watershed: the protection of water quality, and the logical extension of urban development.
