N.C. Bill Of Rights To Tour State

North Carolina's long lost original copy of the Bill of Rights will head out on a statewide tour beginning Friday. Union soldiers stole the priceless document near the end of the Civil War in 1865. It was seized by the F.B.I. when an antiques dealer tried to sell it. It was returned to North Carolina in 2005. The first stop on the tour is Friday at the Air and Special Ops Museum in Fayetteville. The only stop in Eastern Carolina will be the Chowan County Courthouse in Edenton April 19 through the 21st.
