Abstract:
In 1963, North Carolinians searched for a way to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the charter that created North Carolina. They settled on reenacting Daniel Boone's trek through the Blue Ridge Mountains with a wagon train traveling from a farm in Wilkes County to Boone. The reenactment became an annual event until 1974 when locals lost interest as national social and political issues took their toll on these communities.

Abstract:
NC’s plays about the Lost Colony of Roanoke, Blackbeard, Tom Dooley, Daniel Boone, and Andrew Jackson may come as no surprise. This state was a home for the famous pirate and Elizabethan era English settlers, the subject of the popular song, battle site for this Revolutionary War freedom fighter, and settlement that included Jackson’s parents. Plays about NC’s perhaps lesser known ways of involvement in the Revolutionary War included Fight for Freedom, about the first Declaration of Independence document; The Liberty Cart, about the Battle of Moore’s Creek. As for contributions from religious groups, there was Sound of Peace, about a Quaker settlement in Snow Camp. From this Day Forward traced the life of the Walden family, whose descendants and bakeries still exist in Valdese.
