Hoke was formed in 1911 from Cumberland and Robeson Counties. It was named in honor of Robert F. Hoke, a major-general in the Confederate States Army. It lies in the southeastern part of North Carolina, bounded by Cumberland, Harnett, Moore, Robeson, and Scotland counties. Raeford is the county seat.
John McRae and A.A. Williford operated a turpentine distillery and general store, respectively. Each took a syllable from his name and came up with the name Raeford for the post office they established. The MacRae family, who lived at the 'ford of the creek', was at one time made up primarily of old Highland Scot families. Likewise, the Upper Cape Fear Valley of North Carolina was in the 18th and 19th centuries the largest settlement of Gaelic-speaking Highland Scots in North America. Today, many of these old families continue to live in the area, though their presence is noticeably diminished by the great numbers of newcomers to the area as a result of Fort Bragg.
The battle at Monroe's Crossroads, fought on March 10, 1865, was one of the largest all-cavalry engagements of the American Civil War. Though not a major battle in terms of its effect on the outcome of the war, it is of interest to historians for the role it played in General William T. Sherman's march through the Carolinas.
