The Halifax Resolves SAR Chapter and the Halifax Resolves DAR Chapter placed a display in the Scotland Neck Memorial Library honoring the U.S. Constitution. September 17, 1787, was the day the Constitution was created and it was ratified June 21, 1788 when New Hampshire, the ninth colony to do so, approved the document. Of the thirteen colonies that ratified the constitution, North Carolina was the twelfth, doing so on November 21, 1789. This display illustrates the chain of events from the adoption of the Halifax Resolves to the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Halifax Resolves Chapter SAR was represented by Past President Ken Wilson (on left in photo) and Halifax Resolves Chapter DAR Regent Ms. Roberta Josey (on right in photo).
