Charlotte NC History 102

HISTORY 102:  By 1913, rail lines spread from Charlotte in eight directions, making Charlotte a major transportation hub. In the mid-1960's, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed a comprehensive civil rights act which made it illegal to discriminate in voting, the use of public facilities and education.  It was then that education gave Charlotte its' historical headway.  Following a landmark case-Swann vs. the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education-busing was used as a tool to help integrate schools.  By the early 1970s, Charlotte became known as the "city that made integration work."

Since then, Charlotte has continued to change and prosper. Our growth and success was rewarded when the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the National Football League (NFL) awarded professional sports franchises to Charlotte: the Charlotte Hornets and the Carolina Panthers.  The Hornets left Charlotte for New Orleans following the 2001-02 season.  We later welcomed the Charlotte Bobcats (NBA) to our Uptown area, with an arena that adds more WOW to our beautiful city!

CLIMATE:  A moderate climate of warm summers and cool winters makes Charlotte a comfortable place to visit year-round. Summers in Charlotte are long and when winter does arrive, very little snow accumulates.  The city's location on North Carolina's Piedmont and its distance from the Atlantic Ocean also encourage this moderate climate.  Hurricanes occasionally affect the coastal region of North Carolina; however, Charlotte is rarely affected by more than heavy rain during these occasions. During the remainder of the year, rainfall is fairly consistent with the exception of occasional dry spells during late summer and fall.

 

 

 

Charlotte NC Light RailTRANSPORTATION:  With Interstate highways 77 and 85 intersecting at Charlotte, reaching the city by land is an easy option. Greyhound provides motorcoach connections to cities throughout the United States, with daily departures to all major cities. Amtrak also provides rail service to Charlotte. The Carolinian and Piedmont line connect Charlotte to New York City.  One of three hubs for US Airways, Charlotte Douglas International Airport connects Charlotte to the world by air.
