The Twelfth State: North Carolina Ratifies the Constitution
Nov. 22, 1:00 to 5:00 pm
To commemorate the 225th anniversary of NC ratifying the United States Constitution, the Museum of the Cape Fear in cooperation with the Cumberland County Public Library, will host a mini-symposium with scholars presenting on three specific topics: Life for the average North Carolinian; the 1788 Hillsborough Convention where delegates declined to ratify the Constitution; and the 1789 convention in which delegates did sign off on behalf of all North Carolinians. The event is free and open to the public. This project is made possible by a grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council, a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
