North Carolina is a state located in the Southeastern United States along its Atlantic Seaboard. It was one of the original Thirteen Colonies, originally known as Carolina, and the home of the first English colony in the Americas. On May 20, 1861, it became the last of the Confederate states to secede from the Union, and was readmitted on July 4, 1868. It was also the location of the first successful powered heavier-than-air flight by the Wright brothers at Kill Devil Hills near Kitty Hawk in 1903. Today, it is a fast-growing state with an increasingly diverse economy and population. As of July 1, 2006, the population estimate is 8,856,505[3] – a 10% increase since April 1, 2000. for more click here
