History Of North Carolina

North Carolina is one of the original 13 colonies and was the first state to instruct its delegates to vote for independence from the British crown during the Continental Congress. Following the Revolutionary War, North Carolina became a major exporter of cotton and tobacco. In 1861, North Carolina became one of 11 states to secede from the United States, beginning the American Civil War. There where no major battles in the state but North Carolina sent more recruits to fight for the Confederacy than any other rebel state. In 1903, the state became the site of the first manned self-propelled airplane flight when the Wright brothers took off from a cliff near Kitty Hawk.
