Abstract

"In 1761 when Princess Charlotte Sophia of Mecklenburg-Strelitz became the wife of George III, during whose reign the American Revolution took place, little could she imagine how important the city that honored her name would become in the United States of today. Mecklenburg County is the center of a metropolitan area that now embraces one million residents."
