North Carolina Overview

The state of North Carolina is bathed by the Atlantic Ocean. It has 10 million residents (2016). The capital is Raleigh.

In the 16th century, at the time of the arrival of the first European explorers, the dominant indigenous groups in the area were the Tuscaroras, Catawbas and Cherokees.

North Carolina was the land of the lost colony, the first English colony founded in the United States, after failed attempts between 1578 and 1583. Further attempts were made by Sir Walter Raleigh, starting in 1584. In 1587, he founded a colony on Roanoke Island and called it Virginia. Upon returning in 1590, Raleigh no longer found his colony and it is not known what happened.

The first lasting English colony, in the USA, was founded in the present state of Virginia, in 1607. From there, settlers came to the Albemarle Sound area in the 1650s. Carolina was created in 1663 and divided in two in the 18th century. In 1776, during the US War of Independence, North Carolina established its first state constitution. In the Civil War (1861-1865) he fought for the Union, unlike South Carolina, which joined the Confederate slavery.
