Automobiles, Junior Historians and Postage Stamps

Record #:
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.
