Wagons Ho!

Record #:
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.
