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.
