Shipping from the State of Hawaii to North Carolina
Hawaii (Hawaiian: Hawai‘i), an affluence of natural beauty and serenity, is a group of volcanic islands in the central Pacific Ocean. The islands were annexed by the United States in 1900, and as a U.S. territory saw population expansion and the establishment of a plantation system for growing sugarcane and pineapples. On the fateful morning of December 7, 1941, during World War 2, hundreds of Japanese fighter planes attacked the American naval base at Pearl Harbor near Honolulu. The surprise attack destroyed nearly 20 vessels, killed more than 2,000 American soldiers and propelled the United States into war. Hawaii instated into the 50th U.S. state on August 21, 1959.
The islands lie 2,397 miles from San Francisco, California, to the east and 5,293 miles from Manila, in the Philippines, to the west. The capital is Honolulu, located on the island of Oahu.
The state is widely known as the ‘Aloha State’ with the Pua Aloalo (Yellow Hibiscus) considered as the state flower. ‘Ua Mau ke Ea o ka ʻĀina i ka Pono (“The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness”)’- is the state motto.
Shipping to the State of Hawaii to North Carolina
During the Continental Congress, North Carolina was the first state to instruct its delegates to vote for independence from the British crown. Following the Revolutionary War, North Carolina developed an extensive slave plantation system and became a major exporter of cotton and tobacco, although the slave population remained relatively small compared to that of other southern states. Despite no major battles being fought in the state, 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. The statehood was given to North Carolina on November 21, 1789. The state motto is Esse Quam Videri (“To Be Rather Than to Seem”).
It is bordered by Virginia to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Georgia and South Carolina to the south, and Tennessee to the west. Raleigh is the state’s capital and Charlotte is its largest city.
