Read the state Constitution lately?

The current North Carolina State Constitution has grown out of the original constitution produced in December 1776, when the Fifth Provincial Congress led by Speaker Richard Caswell legislated the Constitution of 1776. That original was then replaced by the Constitution of 1868, followed by the Constitution of 1971. For more historical background, check here in NCPedia.
