Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence
The Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence pre-dates the US Declaration of Independence by a full year. This is the site of the signing of the Meck-Dec. by Charlotte area leaders in 1775. While no original document exists it is believed to be the first such document scribed by the citizens of the British colonies. The 5 original copies were destroyed in a fire at the home of John McKnitt Alexander. On Sept 3 1800, Mr. Alexander produced two copies of the document from his notes. There is some dispute as to its origins and even its existance but is said to be the foundation from which the Mecklenburg Resolves were created.
There is little here at this location aside from a Plaque and a covered display with a recreation of the document.
