Mecklenburg Declaration Anniversary!

This Tuesday (May 20) marks the 233rd anniversary of the signing of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence. Mecklenburg County was the first area of the thirteen colonies to declare its independence from Great Britain (Rhode Island would be second but not for almost a year later-May 2, 1776). 

The ads above are from the Bicentennial of 1975.

Happy Anniversary!
