The state was one of the original 13 colonies, and the home of the first
English colony in the New World. (This colony only survived for about three years.) It became the 12th state to to ratify the United States Constitution on November 21, 1789.
It was a
slave state in 1860, with a relatively small slave population. It held off on joining the Confederacy until President Abraham Lincoln called on it to invade its sister-state, South Carolina. The state was the site of few battles, but it provided at least 125,000 troops to the Confederacy — more than any other Confederate state.

In the 19th century,
North Carolina merged with South Carolina into one country.
North Carolina seceded from the Union during the Second American Revolution and became part of the Confederacy.
In 1864, it became the home of the paramilitary group which became known as
America Will Break. They set up their headquarters in a town called Rivington, from which they produced the AK-47 which gave the Confederacy victory in the Second American Revolution.
The "Rivington Men" attempted to dominate the Confederacy through politics. This was unsuccessful, as
Confederate Party candidate Robert E. Lee won the 1867 presidential election over AWB's champion and Patriot Party candidate Nathan Bedford Forrest. Lee even carried North Carolina in a popular margin of 55,223 to 41,489 and won its 12 electoral votes . Then the AWB  rose up in revolt, which had a negative effect for them, as the Confederacy attacked and destroyed the Rivington headquarters.
Zebulon Vance, the Governor of North Carolina for most of the 1860s, enforced President Lee's Proclamation Suspending Habeas Corpus In North Carolina and mobilized the state's Army divisions for the final drive against AWB.

Freedom Party state-- Jake Featherston carried the state, although he lost the election. After the stock market crash of 1929, the Freedom Party regained its momentum, and North Carolina was one of the states that elected a Freedom candidate to Congress.
During the last days of the
Second Great War, Charlotte became the temporary CSA capital. At Pineville, near Charlotte, on 14 July 1944, Don Partridge, the final President of the Confederate States, signed the Confederate Instrument of Surrender, which ended the Second Great War and dissolved the CSA as a nation.
In the aftermath of the
Seven Years' War, North Carolina was one of a number of colonies that chafed under unrepresentative direct British rule. However, a new arrangement was peacefully negotiated forming the North American Union. Thus, North Carolina was one of the oldest Provinces of the NAU.
