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 by a Union soldier and carried to Ohio. The document remained lost until the FBI recovered it in Philadelphia 2003. It is now back in North Carolina. In 2007, the document will be exhibited at several sites around the state. Each stop will include special programs highlighting different amendments.

Abstract:
Durham is a city of many facets. It is the site of the Research Triangle Park, the Duke Medical Center, and 50 percent of the state's biotechnology companies. It is a city that does not like to tear down its history. Buildings that once housed tobacco and textiles represent some of the city's finest architecture. They are now used as offices, shops, restaurants, living spaces, and studios for artists. Wright discusses things to do while visiting Durham, including exploring Civil War history, tobacco history, and African-American history; the arts, such as the American Dance Festival and the Carolina Theatre; and the environment at Eno State Park.
