Awakenings: North Carolina: Beauty Amplified

on November 21, 2014

This Day in History: November 21, 1789

 

One of the thirteen original colonies, North Carolina has a long an interesting history. On November 21, 1789, North Carolina became the 12th state to join the union.

 

North Carolina is home to mysteries, giant industries, and coastal beauty. It’s where gold was first found in America, and where an entire colony of settlers vanished. A state where golf rules the land, NASCAR rules the road, and college basketball holds court over them all. It’s where tobacco became king after the cotton industry went up in smoke, and where a 12-second flight sent shockwaves around the world. Experience the history of the Tar Heel State.
