Led Colonies in
IT Is popularly supposed thnt the
Independence of the United States
began on n Fourth of July in Phil
adelphia, but down In the Old
North State Is a community that
threw off the British yoke nioro than
,n year before the
Tumult In tho city,
In tlio quaint old Quaker town
announced the first general step to
ward the freedom of the colonies.
In 1705 the British parliament passed
the stamp net. When the first sloop of
,wnr arrived off Cnpe Fear from Eng
land carrying stamped puper the peo
ple terrorized tho captain until he wns
afraid to lnnd his stuff, and then they
captured tho stamp officer from the
made tho ofTlcer
take oath that ho
would not at
tempt to enforce
the uso ol
stumps. A year
later tho stamp
net wns repealed.
But North Cnro
llnn had found
that she had n
power when tho
peoplo arose, and
crown wns never
ngnln sure of ltq
ground In the col
ony. Tho people ns
sorted the right
of free assem
blage after that,
nnd the assump
tion led to numer
ous clashes with
tho governor un
til in May, 1771,
the governor, with soldiers, proceeded
ngalnst a band of men culling them
selves Regulators; nnd a few miles
north of Southern Tines n bnttlo was
fought it. which more than 100 casual
ties occurred on both sides, nearly two
score being killed. This was the first
bloodshed In tho Revolution. The In
judicious governor, whose force wns
.victorious, aroused further hntred on
tho part of tho peoplo by hanging a
number of his prisoners. Herman
iHusbnnds, the lender of the Regain
tors, escaped and went to Pittsburgh,
where ho settled, dying later nt Phila
delphia. , Tho feeling wns funned by the. ex
treme nets of each side, until a stato
jJPw J 5
sires stood beside the stream,
shot that echoed 'round the world,
the epoch of their dream
convention was held at Newborn In Au
gust, 177-1. The meeting of the cplonlnl
legislature, which followed, practically
endorsed the radical views of tho con
vention, which wns proclaimed by the
governor to he nnnrcliy. The result was
that the legislature was dissolved nnd
the governor took refuge on u ship of
war in Cape Fear river.
In May, 1775, the people of Mecklen
burg county had n convention, and
they took occasion, nearly 14 months
before the Declaration of Independence
wns Issued at Philadelphia, to say
"We declare ourselves n free nnd
Independent people; nro and of right
ought to be n sovereign and Indepen
dent self-governing association, under
no power than thnt of. our God nnd
the general government of congress.

ment for North
Carolina until n
suitable nnd sta
ble form could bo
provided by con
gress, nnd from
that dny the au
thority of the British crown wns exhib
ited only during thoso few times when
Cornwnllls made his ventures with
more or less varying success on the
territory of the colony.
North Carolina was the first of tho
colonies to hnvo nn English settlement,
tho first to shed blood In the war for
Independence, and tho first to give ut
ternnco in explicit form to that Inde
pendence. Nor wns the declaration of
the peoplo of Mecklenburg the sole
manifestation of the sentiment in the
mntter. At Fnyettevllle, on Cnpe Fear
river below Southern Pines, another
Declaration of Independence unte
dnted that of Philadelphia. Tho peo
ple In Cumberland county, of which
Fnyettevllle is the capital, Issued their
statement In Juno of 1775, insisting
that resort to nrms wns Justified, and
pledging ench other to sacrifice life
and fortune to tho freedom nnd safety
of nn oppressed peopled In April, 177(1,
still before the Philadelphia Declara
tion of Independence, the provlnelnl
congress of North Curollnn appointed
a committee to prepare n civil consti
tution, nnd It was done so well that
the document served some CO yenrs as
tho organic law of the stnte. And m
It wns that North Carolina opened the
road that led up to the creation of the
most progressive nation on the face of
tho eartb, and the one whose Influence
has" done most for the advancement of
Some Tory Sentiment.
All of this section of North Cnrollnr.
wns not enthusiastic in the Declaration
of Independence. A portion of the set
tlers were ardent Tories so ardent.
In fact, thnt It wns not until the war
of 1812 that tho Scotch of Cape Fear
vnlley finally turned nwny absolutely
from the royal standard.
The story Is one of slngulnr misfor
tune. The Cnpe Fear vnlley wns set
tled largely by
the adherents of
the Stuart family,
which met with
such disaster nt
many of the fol
lowers of the Pre
tender were ban
ished to America
for taking up

British crown. Be
