Shipping from the State of North Carolina to Missouri
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.
