|Abstract||Originally populated by Native Americans and settled by the Scottish, Fayetteville has a remarkable history that runs as deep as the Cape Fear River. In the 1700s, Fayetteville became the first state capital of North Carolina, hosting the convention that ratified the U.S. Constitution and the General Assembly session that chartered the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Discover how its stoic citizens survived everything from the Great Fire of 1831 to the battle scars of the Civil War, as local author and history enthusiast Emily Farrington Smith guides us through the storied history of this All-American City.
