Abstract:
The boatbuilding industry in North Carolina has rebounded from its 1980s decline, with approximately 100 companies employing 25,000 workers and pumping $500,000 million into coastal economies. Boatbuilders feel the state should be more involved in their industry. States like New Jersey and Florida give larger tax shares and resources to the boating community than does North Carolina. Others, including New Jersey, Florida, and South Carolina, are sharp competitors for sales.

Abstract:
North Carolina refused to ratify the new Constitution in 1788, unless a list of rights for all citizens was added to it. To win over North Carolina and other states, James Madison sent twelve handwritten copies of the rights to the states; they were accepted. Today this list is known as the Bill of Rights. After the Civil War, the state's handwritten copy was stolen from Raleigh by a Union soldier and carried to Ohio. Jonsson follows the exciting events from the theft of the document in 1865 to a clever sting operation by federal law enforcement officials that recovered the historic paper in Philadelphia in 2003.

Abstract:
Union soldiers may have spared Raleigh's architecture when they sacked the city in 1865, but they made off with more than a few chickens; the prize was an original Bill of Rights, signed by John and Samuel Adams. The North Carolina bill turned up again in Philadelphia in 2003 and came home to North Carolina after 138 years.
