History of Charlotte
History of Charlotte
The first known historic tribe to settle in the area were the Catawba Native Americans around 1567. Nearly two hundred years later around 1755, European colonists arrived, but sadly, by 1759, and with no immunity, half the Catawba tribe died from contracting smallpox, a disease the European colonists had brought with them. First to develop the city “proper” were the Scottish-Irish Presbyterians who arrived from Northern Ireland. Once referred to as the "Queen City,” Charlotte was later named specifically after Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, the Queen Consort of British King George III of Great Britain and Ireland in 1761. The Mecklenburg Resolves, a form of independence from British rule, was signed in 1775 to become the first independence documents on the route to the American Revolution. Following the Civil War, Charlotte became an important cotton processing center and railroad hub. In the 1970s and 1980s, largely due to North Carolina National Bank’s aggressive takeovers and merger with BankAmerica to eventually become Bank of America, Charlotte was well and truly put on the USA financial map. Of the assets managed by the city’s financial institutions, Charlotte became the second largest US banking center in the United States after New York City. First Union also grew dramatically and was taken over by Wells Fargo in 2008, becoming the East Coast operations center for Wells Fargo.
