This volume is a compilation of information covering governmental 
agencies and political subdivisions of the State of North Carolina and 
is issued by the Secretary of State. 

The first manuals issued of a similar character were issued by the 
Secretary of State, later by the North Carolina Historical Commis- 
sion, then by the Legislative Reference Library and this the r.Hl 
Manual is the first one issued by the Secretary of State since the 
return of this activity to the Department of State by the act of 1939. 
Numerous additional features have been included in the 1941 issue 
which it is hoped will make the North Carolina Manual of greater 
I'eference service and of increased interest to those who consult it. 

Sincere appreciation is expressed to the many persons who so 
promptly supplied information for this biennial issue and special 
acknowledgment is made to Wofford F. Humphries, Director of Pub- 
lications in this Department, who comijiled the data for this vohmie 
under my direction. 

With the hope that the North Carolina Manual for 1941 will prove 
useful, interesting and infoi-mative, I take pleasure in presenting it.

The delegates of this Convention, representing the Democrats of 
the 100 counties of the State, adopt the following declarations as the 
Platform of the Party for 1940. 

National Administkation 

We endorse the record of the National Administration under the 
wise and courageous leadership of President Franklin Delano 
Roosevelt and we especially endorse and approve the great humani- 
tarian policies that have characterized his administration and which 
have established the basis not only for prosperity but for the general 
social betterment of our people. Particularly in this time of crisis in 
world affairs we wish to endorse heartily the foreign policy of the 
National Administration which has been firm in the protection of our 
rights and yet far-sighted and successful in its efforts to promote 
peace and to keep this Nation out of war. 


We endorse the distinguished record of the North Carolina dele- 
gation in the National Congress and note with satisfaction the con- 
structive part played by our Senators and Representatives in national 

State Government 

We endorse the progressive and humanitarian record of the 
State Government under the inspiring leadership of our great and 
popular Governor, Clyde R. Hoey, who has led the General Assembly 
and all departments and institutions of the State in service to our 
people. Especially do we approve the untiring efforts and accomplish- 
ments of our Governor in being an ambassador of good will to all the 
people, and we commend his fine public service in currying to all 
classes of our people a knowledge of the workings of their govern- 

Public Education 

The record of the Democratic Party for the past forty years from 
the days of Aycock through the days of Ilocy on the subject of 
public education has been a source of pride to all Democrats. Under 
this leadership, public education has continually progressed from the 

I 1311 

l.'Jii I )KAI()(RA'ri(' I'l.A rioiiii 

time when we had the two to four months public schools in some 
favored sections of the State, until today when we have an eight 
months State-supported public school, elementary and high school, 
available to every child in the State. This system embraces free text- 
books in the elementary grades and free transportation to students 
where necessary. 

We endorse the principle of teacher retirement and recommend 
that the next General Assembly work out a practical plan for putting 
this idea into effect. This plan should also include other State 

Upon the basis of the record of the Democratic Party heretofore, we 
can with assurance pledge continued progress in all matters of public 
education, with special reference to adequate pay for school-teachers, 
improved facilities for vocational training and to all things that will 
make for a more adequate and efficient public school system in 
every portion of the State. 


Realizing the great benefit to the people of our State in increased 
library facilities, we recognize the duty of the State in providing 
this service; and we pledge our party to aid in every possible way the 
enlargement of our present public libraries and the extension of 
pul)lic lilii'ary facilities to each section of the State. 

PiBLic Health 

North Carolina has gone forward by leaps and bounds in the 
public health movement and the Democi-atic Party is to be congratu- 
lated upon the liberally supported progressive public health service in 
the State. 

Public Roads 

North Carolina maintains every foot of public road in the State. 
It is a source of gratification to note the marked improvement in the 
condition of the 4S,000 miles of secondary or farm-to-market roads 
and the improved maintenance of the 11,000 miles of concrete or hard- 
surfaced roads. The constant endeavor has been to so improve the 
secondary roads that they will l)e passaljle all the year 'round. This 
is our first and primary objective and then steadily to improve the 
primary highways by the elimination of dangerous curves and the 
widening of narrow roads and the building of new bridges to replace 

Democratic Platfokji 133 

the narrow and unsafe ones. We commend the policy of Governor 
Hoey in allocating $18,732,882, during his administration, from the 
road fund surplus to purposes of road improvement and we congratu- 
late the public upon the fact that this large sum has been made 
available in addition to the regular road appropriations. Many miles 
of new hard-surfaced roads are being constructed and not a dollar of 
highway revenues have been diverted to the general fund during the 
past three years. We pledge the party to the continuation of the policy 
of non-diversion. 

Highway Safety 

The importance of the highway safety program cannot be over- 
estimated. The last General Assembly, under the recommendation 
of the Governor, made a great advance by increasing the facilities of 
our safety department and good results are being achieved. A de- 
termined effort is being made, with the hearty cooperation of the 
public, to reduce accidents and fatalities and to make our wonderful 
system of highways safe for everybody. 

Social Secikity 

North Carolina is carrying out the social security program in its 
entirety in cooperation with the Federal Government and the coun- 
ties of the State. Over 35,500 old people in need receive checks every 
month for an average of over $10 each and around 23,000 dependent 
children get assistance every month in excess of $6 each. The blind 
are receiving much-needed assistance monthly and over 5(i0.000 
workers are covered by some form of unemployment benefits or insur- 
ance under the beneficent plan provided ])y the Democratic Party 
through the several Federal, State and County governinontal 


I The last General Assembly enacted more constructive legislation 

I for the benefit of agriculture than any preceding legislature in recent 
3 years. Appropriations were made for vital research work and a gon- 
( eral uniting of all the State and Federal agencies working for agri- 

II cultural development. Definite progress is being made in our whole 
I agricultural program and the success achieved augurs well for a con- 
tinuation of an united effort to l)uil(I a great diversified agriculture 
in this mighty Commonwealtli with adeciualc facilities t<i tlie 

134 Demockatic Platform 

particular profit and benefit of tlie farmer and the general enrich- 
ment of the whole State. 

Industry and Labor 

North Carolina is now a great industrial as well as agricultural 
State. The growth of the State industries during the past two 
decades has been most gratifying and the continuation of this growth 
since the period of the depression evidences the faith and confidence 
of the investing public in the justice and fairness of our tax laws 
and the wisdom of our administration of State government, guaran- 
teeing full protection to all of our citizens and safeguarding both 
the personal and property rights of all the people. The good relation- 
ship existing between capital and labor and the mutual concern of 
employers and employees for the good of each bespeaks a healthy 
social and economic condition and contributes to the general welfare 
of all groups. We endoi'se the principle of collective bargaining and 
equal justice to labor and capital. 

Advertising Program 

We point with satisfaction to the intelligent direction of our State 
advertising program, in which we have been acquainting the world 
with the matchless resources of this State and calling attention to the 
many and varied attractions which we have to offer to the tourists. 
The stream of new industries and new citizens coming to the State 
bear testimony to the efficacy of this advertising, and the increasing 
number of tourists each year proves the drawing power of our climate, 
scenery, fishing, hunting, and other appealing attractions. 

Nkw Buiijjings i 

During the past three years the State has conducted the largest ; 
building program in its entire history. All educational, charitable, I 
benevolent and correctional institutions have been enlarged, re- : 
modeled, fireproofed, and had new buildings added. These buildings j 
will meet the needs of the State for many years to come in many | 
instances, and will make unnecessary a general building program any 
time soon. The handsome new Justice Building and new office build- 
ings have been provided for the State, which will save many thou 
sand dollars each year in rentals for State agencies. 

Democratic Platform 135 

Taxes and Finances 

The financial problem Is always of chief concern to government. 
Fortunately North Carolina has a balanced budget and meets all of 
her obligations promptly and is steadily decreasing her public debt. 
Taxes have not been increased during Governor Hoey's administra- 
tion—there have been more reductions than increases — and yet the 
public bonded debt will be decreased by over $26,000,000 despite all 
new bonds issued for the building program and all other public im- 
provements. We commend this marvelous record to the people of the 
State. The credit of North Carolina is so good that the rate of interest 
on ten-year bonds sold last year was at the all-time low of 1.26 per 
cent. The financial interests of the State have been conserved and the 
humanitarian needs of the people met in a very splendid way. 


We pledge our Representatives and Senators in the General Assem- 
bly to re-apportion legislative representation according to the Census 
of 1940, regardless of what counties stand to gain or lose by thus 
complying with this constitutional mandate. 

Parole, Probation and Penal Reform 

North Carolina has been a leader in adopting modern methods in 
the care and treatment of prisoners, and has pioneered in the develop- 
ment of modern and progressive systems of parole and probation. 
Especially do we wish to commend the efforts of Governor Hoey to 
inform the public of its responsibility to the returning prisoner and 
for his far-sighted and humane leadership in all matters pertaining 
to the care and rehabilitation of prisoners. 

Administration of Jisticp: 

We endorse the splendid record of our State judiciary which has 
been characterized by impartiality, integrity, and a devotion to the 
public good. 

I'nder the leadership of Governor Hoey, all the agencies of gov- 
ernment affecting the administration of criminal justice have been 
viewed as a whole and every effort has been made to coordinate 
the actions of the Courts, the State Bureau of Investigation, tlie Office 
of the Attorney General, as well as the agencies of parole and proba- 

136 Democratic Platform 

tion. As a symobl of cooperation, these agencies will shortly occupy a 
magnificent temple of justice erected by the State with the aid of the 
Federal Government. 


In these trying days when democratic institutions are being threat- 
ened, when the faith of our fathers is being denied, when force is 
being substituted for reason, and the bayonet and the bomb are taking 
the place of the ballot-box, we wish to affirm anew our faith in our 
great heritage of liberty, the right to peaceful public assembly, the 
freedom of the press, the freedom of speech for all the people and 
the right to worship God according to the dictates of our own con- 
sciences; and we do declare again, as our forefathers did, that our 
faith shall be a living faith and that we will, by thought, word and 
deed, affirm our allegiance to constitutional government and to that 
vital spirit of democracy which we believe will survive all the vicissi- 
tudes of this dark hour and emerge triumphant.

150 Plan of Organization 

The foregoing is the plan of organization of the Democratic Party 
of North Carolina as adopted by the State Democratic Executive 
Committee, at a meeting held in the City of Raleigh on the 5th day of 
March, 1918, together with all amendments thereto up to and 
Including a special meeting of said committee held in the City of 
Raleigh on July 30, 1937. 

R. Gregg Cherry. Chairman. 


We are passing through a period of unprecedented danger. The 
world is at war. Big govei'nment dominates our domestic economy 
and our private affairs. However, our government is confronted with 
problems so serious that we refrain from harsh criticism of the 
present administration. In fact, our domestic problems are more 
economic than political. Such problems cannot be solved by any expres- 
sion, however vehement, but only by taking the right action. There- 
fore, it is our purpose to state in a short and simple manner the prin- 
ciples in which we believe and the policies we advocate. 

We reaffirm our devotion to the principles and institutions of the 
American system of representative government, in which we have 
implicit faith. In national affairs, the Constitution of the United 
States is our platform, and, therefore, we oppose any Federal meddling 
with the rights of the states, whether it be in industry, agriculture, 
or education. The Republican Party pledges its candidates for Con- 
gress to this program. 

State Affairs 

Governmental institutions: North Carolina and its governmental 
units are deeply in debt. If the State budget has been balanced, it has 
been done solely at the expense of the Federal government in taking 
over a multitude of services heretofore performed by the State, and by 
collecting from the people of North Carolina heavy taxes from every 
conceivable source. A great saving can be effected by a general over- 
hauling of our governmental machinery and records, for there is stu- 
pid duplication and wasteful overlapping of services and functions in 
practically all of our governmental units. 


The ruthless system of taxation imposed upon the people is destroy- 
ing enterprise and initiative. In 1936-37 over two hundred millions of 
dollars of outside capital were invested in constructing new industries 
in the South, but it is reported that North Carolina received less 
than ten million dollars of these new investments. The great natural 
advantages so abundant in North Carolina are being offset by taxes 
so great that new enterprises are afraid to enter the State.

The sales tax falls most heavily upon those least aljle to pay. 

The tax on land absorbs such a large part of the Income that its 
value has been practically destroyed. Vacant property is being rapidly 
acquired by our cities and counties through tax foreclosure suits. 

The license tax on motor vehicles is still too high. 

The collection of income and inheritance taxes is handled in a most 
haphazard fashion, and business is harassed and annoyed by all man- 
ner of taxes of various kinds. 

We advocate a careful study of the system of taxation now em- 
ployed by the State and its various governmental units, to the end 
that the tax load may be lightened and borne by the people on the 
principle of "ability to pay." 

When granted power, we promise: 

1. To revalue land on the basis of its present worth, and reform the 
present system of taxation so that real estate will bear only its just 
proportion of the tax burden. 

2. To eliminate the sales tax by effecting a continuous program of 
economy in our State administration expenses. 

3. To lower the license tax on automobiles. 

4. To eliminate extravagance and waste in highway and road main- 
tenance, to the end that the secondary roads upon which many of our 
farmers are dependent may be kept in good condition. 

5. To enact laws providing strict l)udgetary conti'ol of State expendi- 

6. To eliminate waste and extravagance in order to grant some 
measure of relief to a tax-ridden people. 

Election Laws 

It cannot be denied that any law that fosters fraud either in primary 
or general elections strikes at the very foundation of free govern- 
ment, and destroys public confidence in any administration that 
profits thereby. The absentee ballot law has been repealed witli 
respect to primary elections, but retained for use in the general 
elections. If the repeal of this law was necessary to protect one 
Democratic candidate from another, it must follow that such a law 
is unfit for use in general elections, and should be speedily repealed. 
We advocate new election laws that will guarantee to all parties eciual 

Republican Platform 153 

rights, and secure to every qualified voter a free ballot and an honest 

Public Schools 

We favor a State-supported uniform system of public schools as 
provided for in the Constitution, with free educational opportunities 
for every child in the State. We favor a high standard for teachers, 
and insist that they be paid a decent salary. We advocate the passage 
of laws providing for retirement compensation for teachers when 
their period of usefulness shall have passed, to the end that they 
may be encouraged to continue the valuable services they are now 
rendering the State and Nation. We oppose any national legislation 
under the guise of aid to education that would tend to centralize 
control of our public school system in the hands of the government 
at Washington. We are convinced that the control of our public 
school system should be vested in a non-partisan State school com- 
mission, and non-partisan county boards of education. We advocate a 
coordination and simplification in the administration of our school 
system in order to eliminate duplication, waste, and uncertainty in 
that branch of government. 


We favor the selection of outstanding lawyers of both parties for 
judges of the Supreme and Superior courts. No one should be selected 
for these positions as a reward for political services. 

We believe in the principle enunciated in section 2S, Canon of 
Ethics of the American Bar Association, promulgated in 1038, as 
follows : 

"While entitled to entertain his personal views of political (lues- 
tions, and while not required to surrender his rights or opinions as a 
citizen, it is inevitable that suspicion of being warped by political 
bias will attach to a judge who becomes the active promoter of the 
interests of one political party as against another. He should avoid 
making political speeches, making or soliciting payment of assess- 
ments or contributions to party funds, the iniblic cndorsoiiuMit of 
candidates for political office and participation in party conventions. 

"He should neither accept nor i-etain a place on any i)arty com- 
mittee nor act as party leader, nor engage generally in partisan 

154 Republican Platform 

Intoxicating Liquors 

We oppose the legalized manufactui'e and sale of intoxicating 
liquors in any part of North Carolina, unless approved by the people 
in a State-wide referendum. 

Relief Funds 

All relief funds should be dispensed justly and without discrimi- 
nation by non-partisan local agencies. The charitable and penal insti- 
tutions of the State should be controlled by non-partisan boards. 

Labor and Industry 

We believe the right to work is divinely sacred. We favor the right 
of collective bargaining by free and responsible agents of labor. The 
Republican Party pledges Itself to continue its efforts to protect the 
laboring man by securing for him a just return for his work, whole- 
some conditions under which to work, and fair compensation for such 
injuries as he may sustain while engaged in the course of his employ- 
ment. We advocate laws that will protect the rights of industry. 
Business is suffering from the bossing and meddling of government. 


The basic industry of the State and Nation is agriculture. Through 
the so-called economy of scarcity and international trade agreements, 
the farmer has lost the cotton markets of the world. The tobacco 
farmer finds himself in the same plight. The American market should 
be guaranteed to the American farmer. We pledge our party to exert 
every reasonable eft'ort to' improve the general condition of agri- 
culture in our State. 

National Affairs 

The supremely important problem that today challenges the Re- 
publican Party throughout the Nation is how it may lead a be- 
wildered people out of the "valley of despair," and restore confidence 
in the principles and institutions of the American system of gov- 
ernment. Federal fiscal year expenditures have already passed seven 
billion dollars, and the national debt on March 23rd was reported at 
$42,525,475,883. Big government and not big business is preventing 

Republican Platform 155 

It must be remembered that the party now in power promised in 
1932 to restore agriculture, spread employment, balance the budget, 
preserve a sound currency at all hazards, eliminate extravagance and 
refrain from interference with the internal affairs of other nations. 
The people realize that none of these promises has been fulfilled. 
On the contrary, the farmer has been so regimented and restricted 
that he is dependent on various kinds of subsidies. Millions of work- 
ers are still on relief. The budget has not been balanced in over seven 
years. The gold content of the dollar has been reduced to fifty-nine 
cents. The Federal Administration is practicing the grossest extrava- 
gance and waste, and has meddled in the internal affairs of the other 
nations of the world until the United States is on the verge of war. 

We confidently believe that the sole barrier in the highway that 
leads to national prosperity is the New Deal. Many Democrats will 
admit this. It has created more problems than it has solved. Cast 
the New Deal into the discard. Stop the government from interfering 
and competing with private enterprise, and most of our economic 
problems will vanish. 


We recall that one President of the United States was reelected 
because "he kept us out of war." We were soon in it. Will we permit 
history to repeat itself? We are unalterably opposed to a third term 
for any President at any time. Even world war is not sufficient excuse 
for that. We may fortify every approach to our borders. We may 
cover the seven seas with ironclad battleships. We may fill the skies 
with winged engines of destruction. We may equip the largest army 
the world has ever known. Yet with it all, if we forsake the eternal 
principles of free government and civic righteousness, we shall ulti- 
mately perish. The mothers of America are praying that their sons 
may be spared the fate of the thousands of other brave boys who 
shed their blood on the broad battlefields of Fiance. We believe that 
the only safe way to maintain our neutrality and preserve peace is 
by the election of a Republican President nnd a R('iHil)lican Adminis-

Sixtet'iith ( eiisus of the United States: 1{)40 

Between 1930 and 1940 North Carolina's urban places continued 
to grow faster than the rural areas, according to the final figures 
from the Sixteenth Decennial Census, issued by Director William 
Lane Austin, of the Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce. 

The final count of the Sixteenth Census showed that on April 1, 
1940, North Carolina had a population of 3,571,623, an increase of 
401,347 over the 3,170,276 residents reported in the 1930 Census. This 
change represents an increase of 12.7 per cent as compared with 23.9 
per cent between 1920 and 1930. The poulation increase in urban 
areas from 1930 to 1940 was 20.3 per cent as compared with 10.0 
per cent in the rural sections. Urban residents accounted for 27.3 
per cent of the State's population in 1940, as compared with 25.5 
per cent in 1930. In 1940, residents of urban areas numbered 974,175, 
while the rural population amounted to 2,597,448. The Census J3ureau 
considers as urban areas the incorporated places of 2.500 or more. 
The remaining territory is classified as rural. 

There were 26 incorporated places of 10,000 or more in North 
Carolina, 5 (Burlington, Greenville. Hickory, Lexington, and Reids- 
ville) having reached this size since 1930. All but one (New Bern) 
of these cities increased between 1930 and 1940, Hickory having had 
the most rapid growth (83.2 per cent). 

Ninety-one of the 100 counties gained population between 1930 and 
1940. Alamance County, with an increase of 36.3 per cent, had tlic 
most extensive growth. 

The first census of North Carolina was taken in 1790, rt'tuiiiing a 
population of 393,751. The population has shown an increase at 
every census since that time, but the rate of increase during the past 
decade was the lowest since tbat of IStiO to 1S7(I. The poi)ulation 
pa.s.sed 1,000,000 between 1S60 and 1.S70, 2,000,000 l)etween 190(1 and 
1910, and 3,000,000 between 1920 and 1930. Tlie prcsciil i)()i)iil:ii imi 
represents a density of 72.7 inhabitants ixm- s(niari' inilc. .Ninth 
Carolina's total land area is 4!), 142 s(iuare miles. 

Table 1 presents the figures for counties and for incorporated 
places of 10,000 or more, and Table 2 for incorporated places of 
less than 10,000.

The Capitol building in Washington, D. C, is situated on a plateau 
88 feet above the level of the Potomac River and covers an area of 
153,112 square feet, or approximately three and one-half acres. Its 
length, from north to south, is 751 feet, four inches; its width, 
including approaches, is 350 feet; and its location is described as 
being in latitude 3S0o53'20.4" N. and longitude 770o00'35.7" W. from 
Greenwich. Its height above the base line on the east front to the top 
of the Statue of Freedom is 287 feet, five and one-half inches. The 
dome is built of iron, and the aggregate weight of material used in its 
construction is 8,909,200 pounds. 

The Statue of Freedom surmounting the dome is of bronze and 
weighs 14,985 pounds. It was modeled by Thomas Crawford, father of 
Francis Marion Crawford, the novelist, in Rome, and the plaster 
model shipped to this country. It was cast in bronze at the shops 
of Clark Mills, on the Bladensburg Road, near Washington. The 
cost of the casting and the expenses in connection were $20,796.82, 
and the sculptor was paid $3,000 for the plaster model. It was erected 
and placed in its present position December 2, 1863. 

The grounds have had an area of 58.8 acres, at one time a part of 
Cern Abby Manor, and at an early date were occupied by a subtril)e 
of the Algonquin Indians known as the Powhatans, whose council 
house was then located at the foot of the hill. By subsequent purchase 
of ground at the north of the Capitol and at the west of the new 
House Office building the area of the gi'ounds have been increased to 
1391/2 acres. 

The Rotunda is 97 feet G inches in diameter, and its height from 
the floor to the top of the canopy is 180 feet, 3 inches. 

The Senate Chamber is 113 feet, 3 inches, in length l)y 80 feet, 
3 inches, in width and 36 feet in height. The galleries will accommo- 
date 682 persons. 

The Representatives' Hall is 139 feet in length by !(3 feet in 
width and 36 feet in height. 

The room, until 1935 the meeting place of the Supreme Coui-t, was, 
until 1859, occupied as the Senate Chamber. Previous to that time 
the court occupied the room immediately beneatli, nnw used as a law

256 The National Capitol 

The Capitol has a floor area of 14 acres, and 430 rooms are devoted 
to office, committee, and storage purposes. There are 14,518 square 
feet of skylights, 679 windows, and 550 doorways. 

The dome receives light through 108 windows, and from the archi- 
tect's office to the dome there are 365 steps, one for each day of the 

The southeast corner stone of the original building was laid Sep- 
tember 18, 1793, by President Washington, with Masonic ceremonies. 
It is constructed of sandstone from quarries on Aquia Creek, Va. 
The original designs were prepared by Dr. William Thornton, and 
the work was done under the direction of Stephen H. Hallet, James 
Hoban, George Hadfield, and B. H. Latro1)e, architects. 

The north wing was finished in 1800 and the south wing in 1811. A 
wooden passageway connected them. On August 24, 1814, the interior 
of both wings was destroyed by fire, set by the British. The damage to 
the building was immediately repaired. 

In 1818 the central portion of the building was commenced, under 
the architectural superintendence of Charles Bullfinch. The original 
building was finally completed in 1827. Its cost, including the grad- 
ing of the grounds, alterations, and repairs, up to 1827, was 

The cornerstone of the extensions was laid on the Fourth of July, 
1S51, by President Fillmore, Daniel Webster officiating as orator. 
Tills work was prosecuted under the architectural direction of 
Thomas U. Walter till 1865, when he resigned, and it was completed 
under the supervision of Edward Clark. The material used in the 
walls is white marble from the quarries at Lee, Massachusetts, and 
that in the columns from the quarries at Cockeysville, Maryland. 
The House extension was first occupied for legislative purpose Decem- 
ber 16, 1857, and the Senate January 4, 1859. 

The House office building was begun in 1905 and occupied on 
January 10, 1908; later, a story on top was added. The Senate office 
building was started in 1906 and occupied on March 5, 1909. The 
House building cost, with site, $4,860,155; the Senate structure,

lu 1775 the Philadelphia Troop of Light Horse carried a standard 
with thirteen alternate hlue and silver stripes in the upper left-hand 
corner. At Cambridge on January 2, 1776, Washington without au- 
thorization of the Continental Congress, raised a flag consisting of 
thirteen alternate white and red stripes with the crosses of St. 
George and St. Andrew in a blue field in the upper left-hand corner. 
It was called the "Union Flag," "Grand Union Flag" and the "Con- 
tinental Flag," and was employed until displaced by the Stars and 
Stripes adopted by the Continental Congress. 

The beautiful tradition that Betsy Ross, as early as June 1776, made 
a Stars and Stripes flag from a pencil sketch supplied by Washington 
but changed the points of the stars from six to five, has become a 
classic. Historians doubt its accuracy. Half a dozen localities claim 
to have been the place where the Stars and Stripes was first used. 
Within New York State such contention has been for Fort Ann on 
July 8, Fort Stanwix on August 3, Bennington on August 16. and 
Saratoga on September 19, 1777. The flag with thirteen stripes and 
thirteen stars, authorized on June 14, 1777, continued to be used as 
the national emblem until Congress passed the following act, which 
President Washington signed: 

"That from and after May 1, 1795. the flag of the United 
States be fifteen stripes, alternate red and white: and that the 
union be fifteen stars, white in a blue field." 

This action was necessitated by the admission of the States of Ver- 
mont and Kentucky to the Union. 

The flag of 1795 had the stars arranged in three rows of five each 
instead of in a circle, and served for 23 years. 

With the admission of more new states, however, it became 
apparent that the 1795 fiag would have to be further modified: hence 
in iSlS a law was passed by Congress providing: 

"That from and after the fourth day of July next, the flag of 
the United States be thirteen horizontal stripes, alternate red 
and white: that the union have twenty stars, white in a blue 

r 25S ] 

The American Flao 259 

"That on the admission of evei-y new state into the Union, 
one star be added to the union of the flag; and that such, 
addition sliall talie effect on the Fourth of July next suc- 
ceeding sucli admission." 

Since 181S additional stars have been added until today there are 
48 on tlie flag. No law has been passed to designate how the stars 
shall be arranged. At one time they formed a design of a larger star. 
Now by common practice tliey form six rows of eight stars each. 

Betsy Ross, it is now said, lived at 233 Arch Street. Philadelphia, 
and not at 239. She made flags, but says Theodore D. (Jottlieb, she 
never made the iirst Stars and Stripes. He adds: "The Department 
of State, the War and Navy departments, the Historical Sites Com- 
mission of Philadelphia and other otficial bodies repudiate tlie legend. 
The book and pamphlet material availal)le is overwhelmingly against 
the legend. 

"The story arose for the first time on March 14, 187o. when William 
J. Canby read a paper before the Pennsylvania Histoiical Society in 
which he states that in 183G, when his grandmother, Betsy Ross, 
was 84 years old and he was 11, she told him the story. He apparently 
thought little of it because nothing was done until 1857, when at the 
suggestion of his Aunt Clarissa, oldest daughter of lietsy, he wrote 
out the notes as he remembei'ed the conversation. 

"Nothing further was done until 1870 when he wrote his paper. 
The Historical Society of Pennsylvania thought so little of the paper 
it neither catalogued nor kept a copy of it. Even Cieorge Canby, 
y(ninger brother of William, disputed several points in the paixM-. 

"The legend grew to strength from 1S8S to IMK! wIkmi i)n>niuters 
secured an option on the so-called Flag House. 

"Modern historical researchers are giving much Ibduiilil lo Kiancis 
Hopkinson of New Jersey as the possible designer and tiic Fillmore or 
Bennington flag as the first flag." 

The Proper Display of the American Flag 

The proper way of displaying the American flag, aicoiding lo the 
regulation of the War Department in Washington, I). ('.. may be sum- 
marized as follows: 

When carried in a i)r.ocession with aimllicr tla.sA. or llat;s, the flag 
of the I'nited States of America should be cither on tlic maicliiiig 

260 The Americaa' Flag 

right, i.e., ttie flag's own right, or when there is a line of other flags, 
the flag of the United States of America may be in front of the center 
of that line. 

When displayed with another flag against a wall from crossed 
staffs, the flag of the United States should be on the right, the flag's 
own right, and its staff should be in front of the staff of the other flag. 

When a number of flags of states or cities or pennants of societies 
are grouped and displayed from staffs with the flag of the United 
States of America, the latter should be at the center or at the highest 
point of the group. 

When flags of states or cities or pennants of societies are flown on 
the same halyard with the flag of the United States of America, 
the latter should always be at the peak. 

When displayed either horizontally or vertically against a wall, 
the union should be uppermost and to the flag's own right, i.e., to 
the observer's left. When displayed in a window it should be displayed 
the same way, that is with the union or blue field to the left of the 
observer in the street. 

When displayed over the middle of the street, the flag should be 
suspended vertically with the union to the north in an east and west 
street or to the east in a north and south street. 

When used to cover a casket, the flag should be placed so that the 
union is at the head and over the left shoulder. 

When the flag is displayed in the body of the church, it should l)e 
from a staff placed in the position of honor at the congregation's 
right as they face the clergyman. If in the chancel or on the platform, 
the flag should be placed on the clergyman's right as he faces the con- 

The American flag should not be permitted to touch the ground, or 
trail in the water and it should not be used as drapery or as decora- 
tion, where bunting of red, white and blue is in order. When the 
flag is in such condition that it is no longer a fit emblem for display, 
it should be privately burned. 

America's Creed 261 

The Pledge to the Flag 

(Taught in many of the schools and repeated by pupils daily) 

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of Amer- 
And to the Republic for which it stands, 
One Nation, indivisible. 
With liberty and justice for all." 

The Pledge to the Flag, according to a report of the Historical Com- 
mittee of the United States Flag Association (May 18, 1939), was 
written by Francis Bellamy (August 1892), a member of the editorial 
staff of The Youth's Comimnion, in Boston, Massachusetts. It was 
first repeated at the exercises in connection with the celebration of 
Columbus Day (October 12, 1892, Old Style). The idea of this 
national celebration on Columbus Day was largely that of James B. 
Upham, one of the junior proprietors of The Youth's Companion. 

Francis Hopkinson, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, 
was the designer of the Stars and Stripes — irot Betsy Ross of Phila- 
delphia, who made flags. He also designed the first Great Seal of the 
United States, and a number of coins and several items of paper 
currency in the early days of the Republic. 

Hopkinson, born in Philadelphia (September 21, 1737), and a 
graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, was the first native 
American composer of a secular song, "My Days Have Been So 
"Wondrous Free." He was a lawyer and later a judge in New Jersey, 
and then In Pennsylvania. He died in Philadelphia (May 9, 1791). 
His portrait, painted by himself, hangs in the rooms of the Pennsyl- 
vania Historical Society, Philadelphia. He played the organ and the 


I believe in the United States of America, as a government of the 
people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived 
from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sov- 
ereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and 
inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, 
justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their 
lives and- fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country 

262 Halifax Resolition 

to love it, to suppoi't its constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its 
flag, and to defend it against all enemies. 

I The America's Ci'eed by William Tylei- Page was adopted ])y 

an act of Congress, April 6, 1918.) 


Adopted by the Provincial Congress of North Carolina in Session 
at Halifax, April 12. 1776 

It appears to your committee that pursuant to the plan concerted 
by the British [Ministry for subjugating America, the King and 
Parliament of Great Britain have usurped a power over the persons 
and properties of the people unlimited and uncontrolled; and disre- 
garding their humble petitions for peace, liberty and safety, have 
made divers legislative acts, denouncing war. famine, and every 
species of calamity, against the Continent in general. The British 
fleets and armies have been, and still are. daily employed in destroy- 
ing the people, and comyiitting the most horrid devastations on the 
country. The Governors in different Colonies have declared protection 
to slaves who should imbrue their hands in the blood of their mas- 
ters. That ships belonging to America are declared prizes of war, 
and many of them have been violently seized and confiscated. In con- 
sequence of all of which multitudes of the people have been destroyed, 
()]■ from easy circumstances reduced to the most lamentable distress. 

Am) Wiiekkas, The moderation hitherto manifested by the United 
Colonies and their sincere desire to be reconciled to the mother 
country on constitutional principles, have procured no mitigation of 
the aforesaid wrongs and usurpations, and no hopes remain of obtain- 
ing redress by those means alone which have been hitherto tried,

(Unanimously Adopted in Congress, July 4, 1776, at Philadelphia) 

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one 
people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with 
another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate 
and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God 
entitles them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires 
that they should declare the causes which impel them to the sep- 

We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created 
equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable 
Rights; that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Hap- 
piness. That, to secure these rights, Governments are instituted 
among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the gov- 
erned ; That, whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive 
of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it. 

Declaration of Ixdkpexdexce 265 

and to institute new Government, laying its foundations on such prin- 
ciples, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem 
most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, 
will dictate that Governments long established should not be 
changed for light and transient causes; and, accordingly, all expe- 
rience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while 
evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms 
to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and 
usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design 
to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their 
duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for 
their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these 
Colonies, and such is now the necessity which constrains them to 
alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present 
King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpa- 
tions, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute 
Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to 
a candid world. 

He has refused his assent to Laws, the most wholesome and neces- 
sary for the public good. 

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and 
pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his 
Assent should be obtained; and, when so suspended, he has utterly 
neglected to attend to them. 

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of 
large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the 
right of Representation in the Legislature — a right inestimable to 
them, and formidable to tyrants only. 

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, un- 
comfortable and distant from the depository of their public Records, 
for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his 

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing 
with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. 

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause 
others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of An- 
nihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; 
the State remaining, in the meantime, exposed to all the dnngors of 
invasion from without, and convulsions within. 

2(5(5 Declakation of Lndependekce 

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these States for 
that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; 
refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and rais- 
ing the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands. 

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his 
Assent to laws for establishing Judiciary Powers. 

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure 
of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. 

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms 
of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance. 

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without 
the Consent of our Legislature. 

He has affected to render the Military independent of. and superior 
to, the Civil power. 

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign 
to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his 
Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: 

For ciuartering large bodies of armed troops among us: 

For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any 
Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States: 

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the w^orld : 

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent : 

For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by jury: 

For transporting us beyond Seas, to be tried for pretended offenses: 

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighboring 
Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarg- 
ing its Boundaries, so as to render it at once an example and fit 
instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies: 

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, 
and altering, fundamentally, the Forms of our Governments: 

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves 
invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. 

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his 
Protection and waging War against us. 

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, Ijurnt our towns, 
and destroyed the lives of our people. 

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries 
to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun 
with circumstances of Cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the 

I)e(Lakati()X ok Lndkpendknce 267 

most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized 

He has constrained our fellow-Citizens, taken captive on the high 
Seas, to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners 
of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. 

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us. and has en- 
deavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiei-s. the merciless 
Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare is an undistinguished 
destruction of all ages, sexes, and conditions. 

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress 
in the most humble terms; Our repeated Petitions have been answered 
only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked 
by every act whidi may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a 
free people. 

Nor have we been wanting in attentions to our Britain brethren. 
We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legisla- 
ture to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have re- 
minded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement 
here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and 
we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow 
these usurpations, which inevitably interrupt our connections and 
correspondence. They, too, have been deaf to the voice of justice 
and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, 
which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest 
of mankind — Enemies in War, in Peace Friends. 

Wk, Therefore, the Representatives of the United States of Amer- 
ica, in General Congi-ess Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge 
of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and 
by authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish 
and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be, 
free and independent States; that they are Al)solved from all Allegi- 
ance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between 
them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be. totally dis- 
solved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full 
Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Com- 
merce, and to do all other Acts and Tilings whicli Independent States 
may of right do. And for the support of this Dec hiral ion, wilh a firm 
reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually idcdgo 
to each other our Lives, oui' Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

Senate and House of Representatives may be necessary (except on a 
question of adjournment) shall be presented to the President of the 
United States; and before the same shall take effect, shall be approved

inclusive, were proposed at the First Session of the First Congress,

1789, and were adopted by the necessary number of States. The 
original proposal of the ten amendments was preceded by this 
preamble and resolution: 

"The conventions of a number of the States having, at the time of 
their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to pre- 
vent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory 
and restrictive clauses should be added, and as extending the ground 
of public confidence in the Government will best insure the beneficent 
ends of its institution: 

"RESOLVED, By the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America, in Congress assembled, two-thirds of both 
Houses concurring, that the following articles be proposed to the 
Legislatures of the several States, as amendments to the Constitution 
of the United States; all or any of which articles, when ratified by 
three-fourths of the said Legislatures, to be valid to all intents and

The original State Capitol of North Carolina was destroyed liy fire 
on June 21, 1831. 

At the session of November, 1832, the Assembly resolved to rebuild 
on the old site, and $50,000 was appropriated for the purpose. Com- 
missioners were appointed to have the work done. The rubbish was 
cleared away, the excavations made and the foundations were laid. 
On July 4, 1833, the cornerstone was set in place. 

After the foundations were laid the work progressed more slowly, 
and it was so expensive that the appropriation was exhausted. The 
Legislature at its next session appropriated $75,000 more. To do tlie 
stone and finer work many skilled artisans had been brought from 
Scotland and other countries. The Building Commissioners con- 
tracted with David Paton to come to Raleigh and superintend the 
work. Mr. Paton was an architect who had come from Scotland the 
year before. He was the builder, the architect, the designer. 

The Legislature was compelled to make appropriations for the 
work from time to time. The following is a table of the several 
appropriations made: 

Session of 1832-33 $ 50,000.00 

Session of 1833-34 75,000.00 

Session of 1834-35 75,000.00 

Session of 1835 75,000.00 

Session of 1836-37 120,000.00 

Session of 1838-39 105,300.00 

Session of 1840-41 31,374.4fi 

Total $531,674.46 

The stone with which the building was erected was the property 
of the State. Had the State been compelled to purchase this material 
the cost of the Capitol would have been considerably increased. 

In the summer of 1840 the work was finished. At last, after more 
than seven years, the sum of $531,674.46 was expended. As large as 
that sum was for the time, when the State was so poor and when the 
entire taxes for all State purposes reached less than $100,000, yet the 
people were satisfied. The building had lieen erected with rigorous

economy, and it was an object of great pride to tlie people. Indeed, 
never was money better expended than in tlie erection of this noble 

Description of the Capitol, Written by David Paton, 

the Architect 

"The State Capitol is 160 feet in length from north to south by 
140 feet from east to west. The whole height is 97^/2 feet in the center. 
The apex of pediment is 64 feet in height. The stylobate is 18 feet 
in height. The columns of the east and west porticoes are 5 feet 2i/^ 
inches in diameter. An entablature, including blocking course, is 
continued around the building, 12 feet high. 

"The columns and entablature are Grecian Doric, and copied from 
the Temple of Minerva, commonly called the Parthenon, which was 
erected in Athens about 500 years before Christ. An octagon tower 
surrounds the rotunda, which is ornamented with Grecian cornices, 
etc., and its dome is decorated at top with a similar ornament to that 
of the Choragic Monument of Lysicrates, commonly called the 
Lanthorn of Demosthenes. 

"The interior of the Capitol is divided into three stories: First, the 
lower story, consisting of ten rooms, eight of which are appropriated 
as offices to the Governor, Secretary, Treasurer, and Comptroller, 
each having two rooms of the same size — the one containing an area 
of G49 square feet, the other .528 square feet — the two committee 
rooms, each containing 200 square feet, and four closets; also the 
rotunda, corridors, vestibules, and piazzas, contain an area of 4,370

union, containing in the center thereof a white star with the letter 
N in gilt on the left and the letter C in gilt on the right of said star, 
the circle containing the same to be one-third the width of the union. 

Sec. 2. That the fly of the flag shall consist of two equally pro- 
portioned bars; the upper bar to be red, the lower bar to be white; 
that the length of the bars horizontally shall be equal to the per- 
pendicular length of the union, and the total length of the flag shall 
be one-third more than its width.

tutions and public buildings shall provide a North Carolina flag, of 
such dimensions and material as they may deem best, and the same

building at all times except during inclement weather, and upon the 
death of any State officer or any prominent citizen the flag shall be 
put at half-mast until the burial of sucli person shall have taken

in this State shall likewise authorize the procuring of a North Caro- 
lina flag, to be displayed either on a staff upon the top. or draped 
behind the Judge's stand, in each and every courthouse in the State, 
and that the State flag shall be displayed at each and every term of 
court held, and on such other public occasions as the Commissioners 
may deem proper." (Rev., s. 5321; 1885. c. 291; 1907, c. 838.)

The Constitution of North Carolina, Article III, section IG, requires 


"There shall be a seal of the State which shall be kept by the 
Governor, and used by him as occasion may require, and shall be 
called 'The Great Seal of the State of North Carolina." All grants 
and commissions shall be issued in the name and by the authority 
of the State of North Carolina, sealed with 'The Great Seal of the 
State,' signed by the Governor ;ind countersigned by the Secretary 
of State." 

The use of a Great Seal for the attestation of important documents 
began with the institution of government in North Carolina. There 
have been at various times nine different seals in use in the colony 
and State. 

The present Great Seal of the State of North Carolina i? described 
as follows: 

"The Great Seal of the State of North Carolina is two and one- 
quarter inches in diameter, and its design is a representation of the 
figures of Liberty and Plenty, looking toward each other, but not 
more than half fronting each other, and otherwise disposed as 
follows: Liberty, the first figure, standing, her pole with cap on it in 
her left hand and a scroll with the word 'Constitution' inscribed 
thereon in her right hand. Plenty, the second figure, sitting down, 
her right arm half extended toward Liberty, three heads of wheat in 
her right hand, and in her left the small end of her horn, the mouth 
of which is resting at her feet, and the contents of horn rolling out. 
In the exergon is inserted the words May 20, 177.5. above the coat of 
arms. Around the circumference is the legend 'The Great Seal of the 
State of North Carolina' and the motto 'Esse Quam Videri'." (Rev., 
s. .5339; Code, ss. 3328, 3329; 1868-9, c. 270, s. 35; 1883, c. 392; 1893, 
c. 145.)

God, the Sovereign Ruler of Nations, for the preservation of the 
American Union and the existence of our civil, political, and religious

be exercised in pursuance of the law, and consistently with the Con- 
stitution of the United States.

remain a member of the American Union; that the people thereof are 
a part of the American Nation; that there is no right on the part of

upon whatever pretext, to dissolve said Union or to sever said Nation, 
ought to be resisted with the whole power of the State. 

Skc. 5. Of allegiance to the United States Government. That every 
citizen of this State owes paramount allegiance to the Constitution 
and Government of the United States, and that no law or ordinance 
of the State in contravention or subversion thereof can have any

1868, '68-''6iK '6!)'-70, declared invalid; exception. The State shall

ity of the Convention of the year one thousand eight hundred and 
sixty-eight, nor any debt or bond incurred or issued by the Legisla- 
ture of the year one thousand eight hundred and sixty-eight, either 
at its special session of the year one thousand eight hundred and 
sixty-eight, or at its regular sessions of the years one thousand eight 
hundred and sixty-eight and one thousand eight hundred and sixty- 
nine, and one thousand eight hundred and sixty-nine and one thou- 
sand eight hundred and seventy, except the l)onds issued to fund the 
interest on the old debt of the State, unless the proposing to pay the

ratified by the vote of a majority of all the qualified voters of the 
State at a regular election held for that purpose.

Constitution of North Carolina 297 

Sec. 9. Of the power of suspending laws. All power of suspending

ought not to be exercised.

Sec. 11. In criminal prosecutions. In all criminal prosecutions 
every man has the right to be informed of the accusation against

SIX', lit. Controverfiies at Jaic rcsperti)iii jiropcrtij. In all rou- 
troversies at law respecting property, the ancient mode of trial by 
jury is one of the best securities of the rights of the people, and ought 
lo remain sacred and inviolable. 

Sec. 20. Fi-eedom of the iness. The freedom of the press is one of 
the great bulwarks of liberty, and therefore ought never to be 
i-estrained. but every individual shall be held responsible for the 
abuse of the same.

cvrptts shall not be suspended.

are not dependent upon, or modified by, property, therefore no 
property qualification ought to affect the right to vote or hold office. 

Six. 23. Representation and taxation. The people of the State 
ought not to be taxed, or made subject to the payment of any impost 
or duty without the consent of themselves, or their representatives in 
(leneral Assembly, freely given. 

Sec. 24. Militia and the right to hear arms. A well regulated 
militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of 
the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed; and, as stand- 
ing armies in time of peace are dangerous to liberty, they ought not 
to be kept up, and the military should be kept under strict subordina- 
tion to, and governed by, the civil power. Nothing herein contained 
shall justify the practice of carrying concealed weapons, or prevent 
the Legislature from enacting penal statutes against said practice. 

Sec. 25. Riyht of the people to assemble togetlier. The people have 
a risht as assemble together to consult for their common good, to 
instruct their representatives, and to apply to the Legislature for 
redress of grievances. But secret political societies are dangerous to 
the liberty of a free people, and should not be tolerated. 

Sec. 26. Ueliyious lihcrti/. All men have a natural and inalienable 
I'ight to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of their 
own consciences, and no human authority should, in any case what- 
ever, control or interfere with the rights of conscience. 

Sec. 27. Education. The people have the right to the privilege of 
education, and it is the duty of the State to guard and maintain that

privileges, or honors ought to be granted or conferred in this State. 

Sec. 31. Perpetuities, etc. Perpetuities and monopolies are con- 
trary to the genius of a free State, and ought not to be allowed. 

Seb. 32. Ex post facto laws. Retrospective laws, punishing acts 
committed before the existence of such laws, and by them only 
declared criminal, are oppressive, unjust, and incompatible with 
liberty; wherefore no ex post facto law ought to be made. No law 
taxing retrospectively sales, purchases, or other acts previously done, 
ought to be passed. 

Sec. 33. Slavery prohibited. Slavery and involuntary servitude, 
otherwise than for crime, whereof the parties shall have been duly

In 1629 King Charles the First of England "erected into a 
province," all the land from Albemarle Sound on the north to the 
St. John's River on the south, which he directed should be called 
Carolina. The word Carolina is from the word Carolus, the Latin 
form of Charles. 

When Carolina was divided in 1710, the southern part was called 
South Carolina and the northern or older settlement was called 
North Carolina, or the "Old North State." Historians had recorded the 
fact that the principal products of this State were "tar, pitch and 
turpentine." It was during one of the fiercest battles of the War 
Between the States, so the story goes, that the column supporting the 
North Carolina troops was driven from the field. After the battle, 
the North Carolinians, who had successfully fought it out alone, 
were greeted from the passing derelict regiment with the question: 
"Any more tar down in the Old North State, boys?" Quick as a flash 
came the answer; "No; not a bit; old Jeff's bought it all up." "Is that 
so: what is he going to do with it?" was asked. "He is going to put 
it on you'ns heels to make you stirk Ijetter in the next fight." Creecy 
relates that General Lee, heai'ing of the incident, said: "God bless the 
Tar Heel boys," and from that they took the name. — Adapted from 
Grandfatlier Tales of North Carolina by R. B. Creecy and Histories 
of North Carolina Regiments, Vol. Ill, by Walter Clark. 

The State Motto 

The General Assembly of 1893 (chapter 145) adopted the words 
"Esse Quam Videri" as the State's motto and directed that these 
words with the date "20 May, 1775," should be placed with our Coat 
of Ai-ms upon the Great Seal of the State. 

The words "Esse Quam Videri" mean "to be rather than to seem." 
Nearly every State has adopted a motto, generally in Latin. The 
reason for their mottoes being in Latin is that the Latin tongue is 
far more condensed and terse tlian the English. The three words, 
"Esse Quam Videri," require at least six English words to express 
the same idea. 

[ :531 

;j:iL' TiiK Staik Sox(; 

Curiosity has been aroused to learn the origin of our State motto. 
It is found in Cicero in his essay on Friendship (Cicero de Amicitia. 
chap. 26). 

It is a little singular that until the act of 1893 the sovereign State 
of North Carolina had no motto since its declaration of independence. 
It was one of the very few States which did not have a motto and the 
only one of the original thirteen without one. (Rev., s. 5320; 1893, 
c. 145.) 

The State Song 

The song known as "The Old North State," as hereinafter written, 
adopted and declared to be the official song of the State of North 
Carolina, said song being in words as follows: 
"Carolina! Carolina! Heaven's blessings attend her! 

While we live we will cherish, protect and defend her; 
Though the scorner may sneer at and witlings defame her. 

Oui- hearts swell with gladness whenever we name her. 

Hurrah! Hurrah! The Old North State forever! 
Hurrah! Hurrah! The good Old North State! 

Though she envies not others their merited glory, 

Say, whose name stands the foremost in Liberty's story! 

Though too true to herself e'er to crouch to oppression, 
AVho can yield to just rule more loyal submission? 

Plain and artless her sons, but whose doors open faster 
At the knock of a stranger, or the tale of disaster? 

How like to the rudeness of their dear native mountains. 
With rich ore in their bosoms and life in their fountains. 

And her daughters, the Queen of the Forest resembling — 
So graceful, so constant, yet to gentlest breath trembling; 

And ti'ue lightwood at heart, let the match be applied them. 

How they kindle and flame! Oh! none know but who've tried them. 

Then let all who love us, love the land that we live in 

(As happy a region as on this side of Heaven), 
Where Plenty and Freedom, Love and Peace smile before us, 

Raise aloud, raise together, the heart-thrilling chorus!" 

(1927, c. 26, s. 1.)

The State Flower 

A number of reference books list the goldenrod. The oxeye daisy 
has been designated by an unofficial vote of the schools. 
No flower has been officially designated. 

The State Bird 

The Carolina Chickadee was designated by popular vote in 1931 
under sponsorship of State Women's Clubs. The General Assembly 
on May 8, 1933 officially designated it as the State bird, but repealed 
its action seven days later. 

No bird is officially designated. 

The State Colors 

There are no officially designated colors. Many generally accept 
the colors of the University of North Carolina— BLUE AND WHITE. 

The State's Most Famous Toast

"Here's to the land of the long leaf pine 
The summer land where the sun doth shine;

And the strong grow great,
