A Snapshot of Presidents in Charlotte
A number of U.S. Presidents have visited Charlotte in years past. George Washington, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, John F. Kennedy, and others at one point stopped by this New South City. Some came to campaign, hoping to engage Southern voters. Others came as part of a holiday honoring the history of the purported signing of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence on May 20, 1775. Whatever the event or occasion, each visit was unique and added to the rich history of Charlotte.
