During the Continental Congress, the delegates from North Carolina, a member of the original 13 colonies, were advised to vote against the British crown by seeking independence. It was the first state to do this. North Carolina became the prime exporter of tobacco and cotton after the Revolutionary War because of the development of the plantation system through slave labor. Yet, compared to other southern states, North Carolina was able to maintain a small population of black slave labor. The American Civil War started in 1861 when 11 states, including North Carolina, separated from the United States. The Confederate Army was able to get more recruits from North Carolina than any other southern state, even when no major battle happened in the state. Fame was brought to North Carolina in 1903 in the form of the Wright Brothers, who tested and flew the first self-propelled aircraft from a promontory near Kitty Hawk. The capital city of North Carolina is Raleigh.

There are 100 counties in the state of North Carolina. In size area, North Carolina ranks 29th, but the numbers of their counties put them in the 7th place rank. There is a 240- year history in the establishment of the state of North Carolina. The creation of Albemarle County in 1668 was the start, and the creation of the counties of Hoke and Avery in 1911 was the end.

The highest court of the state is the Supreme Court of North Carolina, which is composed of six associate justices and a chief judge. These justices hold office in Raleigh to hear arguments from appealed cases coming from the lower courts.

The intermediate appellate court is the Court of Appeals, with a total of 15 justices who sit in three panels over cases. The Court of Appeals shares the same courthouse with the Supreme Court in Raleigh.

Offender Search Web Page

The purpose and specifics of the Offender Search Web Page in each state varies. Read the disclosures carefully. Updates to the database could be biweekly, monthly and daily depending on the states Corrections Department schedule. Some searches show offenders incarcerated in the entire prison system including county jails and some only state prisons. Sometimes historical offender data is available and sometimes only current inmate records are listed. Youth and adult offenders are sometimes located on separate search portals.
