Abstract:
Chinqua-Penn Plantation near Reidsville is one of North Carolina's most popular tourist and visitor attractions. It was the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jefferson Penn, who, in their extensive travels around the world, purchased a wide variety of art, including Chinese life-size statues, tapestries, and a Byzantine mosaic. Many of the twenty-seven rooms in the house showcase this art collection. Five greenhouses are used in the care and development of the plantation's gardens. In 1959, Mrs. Penn donated the plantation to the Consolidated University, although she continued to live there until her death in 1965.

Abstract:
North Carolina’s automobile license plate slogan “First in Freedom” has stirred controversy, but may be valid. According to historian Dr. Hugh T. Lefler of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina’s role in the freedom movement is marked by four major events during the Revolutionary period, each of which was instrumental in moving the state and nation toward independence. These events include the First Provincial Congress in New Bern, the Mecklenburg Resolves, the Battle at Moore’s Creek, and the Halifax Resolves.
