Quiz Answered—‘The Promises of the Declaration of Independence Fulfilled’ by Robert E. Winters, Jr.
Tar Heel Junior Historian magazine sponsored a contest for Junior Historians to give the meaning of an allegorical print representing social change in the 1870’s. No Junior Historian answered the quiz, so the magazine went on to give the meaning of the twelve points made in the drawing. There is an appendix giving additional information about the allegory given in the print.
The author talks about early cars built in North Carolina. Gilbert S. Waters of New Bern, NC, built a gas driven car in 1900 and a second car in 1903. This second car was given to the NC Hall of History in Raleigh, NC in 1948. The author goes on to give a history of automobiles in the United States and then other early car builders in North Carolina. Two Tar Heel Junior Historians submitted their designs for a postage stamp commemorating the early automobile industry.
