North Carolina Introduction

              North Carolina Introduction

            North Carolina is a state of vast diversity, stretching from the purple ridges of the Appalachian Mountains in the west to the Atlantic seashore in the east. A trip here can involve the best of the East Coast's beaches, American history, scenic rides through farmland and mountains, and award-winning golf courses. Wilmington draws attention with its naval ships and oceanfront dining. Nature lovers will want to head to Asheville to explore the Appalachian's mountains and rivers, while Winston-Salem preserves an Old World, colonial feel with its 18th-century Moravian buildings.

North Carolina became the 12th state to join the Union on November 21, 1789. North Carolina’s first senator, Samuel Johnston, took office on November 26, 1789, followed by Benjamin Hawkins on December 8, 1789. North Carolina’s longest-serving senators include Furnifold Simmons (1901-1931) and Jesse Helms (1973-2003). Among those who rose to leadership positions are Willie P. Mangum and Matt Ransom, both of whom served as the Senate’s president pro Tempore.
