North Carolina

North Carolina was originally inhabited by many different native peoples, including the Cherokee, Creek, Tuscarora, Lumbee and Catawba. North Carolina was the first American territory the English attempted to colonize. Sir Walter Raleigh, for whom the state capital is named, chartered two colonies on the North Carolina (then Virginia) coast in the late 1580s, both ending in failure. The demise of one, the "Lost Colony" of Roanoke Island, remains one of the great mysteries of American history. Virginia Dare, the first English child to be born in North America, was born in North Carolina. Dare County is named for her.

Colonial period and Revolutionary War
The first permanent European settlers of North Carolina were English colonists migrating south from Virginia, following a rapid growth of the colony and the subsequent shortage of available farmland. Nathaniel Batts was documented as one of the first of these Virginian immigrants. He settled south of the Chowan River and east of the Great Dismal Swamp in 1655.[1] By 1663, this northeastern area of the Province of Carolina was experiencing full-scale English settlement.[2]

During the same period, the English monarch Charles II gave the province to the Lords Proprietors, which was a group of noblemen who had helped restore Charles to the throne in 1660. In 1712, North Carolina became a separate colony. With the exception of the Earl Granville's holdings, it became a royal colony seventeen years later. According to legend, on May 20, 1775, Mecklenburg County became the first North Carolina county to declare its independence from Great Britain. On April 12, 1776, the colony became the first to instruct its delegates to the Continental Congress to vote for independence from the British crown. The dates of both of these independence-related events are memorialized on the state flag and state seal.

On November 21, 1789, North Carolina ratified the Constitution to become the twelfth state in the Union. It is one of the main reasons the United States Bill of Rights exists. The state refused to ratify the constitution until some sort of declaration of the peoples rights was added. The North Carolina Government received a letter from Continental Army General George Washington stating that this was a wonderful idea. Thus, the Bill of Rights was added to the United States Constitution. North Carolina worked to establish its state and local governments. In 1840, it completed the state capitol building in Raleigh, still standing today. In mid-century the state's rural and commercial areas were connected by construction of a 129 mile (208 km) wooden plank road, known as a "farmer's railroad," from Fayetteville in the east to Bethania (northwest of Winston-Salem).

In 1860, North Carolina was a slave state. It refused to join the Confederacy until President Abraham Lincoln called on it for troops to invade South Carolina. The state was the site of few battles, but in the Civil War it provided 281,205 troops to the ConfederacyŚmore than any other Confederate state. Approximately 40,000 of those troops never returned home, dead of battlefield wounds, disease and privation. Governor Zebulon Baird Vance, elected in 1862, tried to maintain state autonomy against president Jefferson Davis in Richmond. The state's troops served in virtually all the major battles of the Army of Northern Virginia. The largest battle in the state was at Bentonville, which was a futile attempt by Confederate General Joseph Johnston to slow Union General William Tecumseh Sherman's advance into the Carolinas in the spring of 1865. In March of 1865, Sherman was able to capture his chief North Carolina objective when he took Goldsboro; at the time it was the main railroad junction in North Carolina. Johnston surrendered one of the largest Confederate armies at Bennett Place, a farm house in what is now Durham, in late April 1865, weeks after General Robert E. Lee's surrender at Appomattox. A small, integrated guerrilla force of white and Cherokee Confederates under William Holland Thomas continued fighting in the mountains until May 10. This unit, called the "Thomas Legion," was never actually defeated by Union troops; it had the odd distinction of capturing a city (Waynesville) then voluntarily ceasing from hostilities.
