Charlotte's Early History

The first inhabitants of North Carolina were of Native American descent, but eventually American colonists in the 1700s, along with Africans brought to the United States as slaves, would make settlements there. After the Civil War, Charlotte became a boom town for cotton processing and mining, and later took shape as a major financial center in the 1970s and 1980s. (Photo: Wikicommons)
