Excerpt from Charlotte in Picture and Prose: An Historical and Descriptive Sketch of Charlotte, North CarolinaThe Piedmont Region of North Carolina bears an interesting relation to the Old World- through the veins of its people flow the same strainsMoreExcerpt from Charlotte in Picture and Prose: An Historical and Descriptive Sketch of Charlotte, North CarolinaThe Piedmont Region of North Carolina bears an interesting relation to the Old World- through the veins of its people flow the same strains of blood that course in the veins of European nations, and the very names reechoing throughout its borders link it with more than one country of Europe.Italy has given the name Piedmont to our mountainous region because of its likeness to her own sunny slopes.

The principality of Pied Northern Italy, lying along the foot of the Alps, is a country of unusual beauty, and was included among the possessions of Amadeus V, surnamed the Great, Count of Savoy. By him it was granted to his brother, Thomas II, whose son Thomas III became founder of the line bearing the titles, Lords of Piedmont.

The foot-hills of the lower Appalachian system so closely resemble this portion of Italy in contour and climate that it has been given the name of the Piedmont Region.The climate has also been frequently likened to that of Southern France- and this comparison is doubly appropriate since the Carolinas were so-called, in 1563, by French settlers of the eastern borders, in honor of their king, Charles (Carolus) IX.Germany and England divide honors in having bestowed upon county and town the names Mecklenburg and Charlotte.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
