The Story Of Charlotte

mecklenburg-county-charlotte-nc1.jpg

Every July, America celebrates its beginnings so we’re going to look back on this city’s 251 year history with a historian who has studied and written about it for years.  From our Scotch-Irish roots to our status as a major American city, from how the city got “liquored up” to the Miracle on the Hudson.  And from the Loray Mill Strike of 1929 to surviving the crash of 2008, learn how the Queen City came to be what it is today.
