NC Museum of History opens final part of state history exhibitBreaking News
RALEIGH, NC (WECT) - This weekend, the North Carolina Museum of History will open the final part of its largest exhibit ever, "The Story of North Carolina."
Thousands of people have already seen part one of the exhibit, which opened in the spring, but it only skimmed the surface of the state's early history, from North Carolina's earliest inhabitants thru the early 1800's. Part two will continue the journey thru the antebellum era, the Civil War, the rise of industry, the Great Depression, the two World Wars and the Civil Rights movement.
"It is a good survey of the state's history," said Donna Bell-Kite, the North Carolina Museum of History's assistant curator." "It is not going to go into a great amount of detail in any one particular subject, but going thru this exhibit, you should get a good overview of North Carolina's history, from its earliest inhabitants until today."
Hundreds of artifacts help tell the story. Early in the tour, you'll find out about the issue of slavery in North Carolina before the Civil War brought changes, divisions and hardships....
