North Carolina State Flag
The belief that Americas most celebrated document, the Declaration of Independence, is the first of its kind expressing Americas break with England is false, according to some North Carolina historians. They say the nations most famous document was written a year after the true first separation from England was declared the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence.
 
The Mecklenburg Declaration, called Mec Dec,was signed on May 20, 1775, in reaction to the Battles of Concord and Lexington. The group wrote, ...we the citizens of Mecklenburg County, do hereby... absolve ourselves from all bonds to the British Crown.
 
Controversy arose about which document came first. The Mec Dec was reconstructed following an 1800 fire, and there are many similar phrases to the 1776 Declaration. It was published in the Raleigh Register newspaper in 1819. Most historians believe the Mec Dec arose from faulty memories of the participants, who in trying to recreate it after the fire confused it with the Mecklenburg Resolves, a different document protesting British tyranny that was written 11 days later. Still, the North Carolina State Flag proclaims May 20th, 1775, as an important day in state history.
