Excerpt from Charlotte in Picture and Prose: An Historical and Descriptive Sketch of Charlotte, North Carolina

Sugar Creek Churchhome in Germany, and the county-seat was called Charlotte, be ing also frequently known as the Queen City. This expression of loyalty to the mother-country, from subjects so far distant, was doubtless pleasing to the king who little dreamed that within a few years their allegiance would be boldly withdrawn.

This change in sentiment was due to the fact that Scotland's sons had found in this same Piedmont region a country whose rugged beauty bore a strong resemblance to their former home; and here amid its hills and forests they sought that freedom of thought and action which in Scotland had been denied them. To this section of America, about the middle of the eighteenth cen tury, came many settlers, who were Scotch by birth, and from a temporary residence in Ireland, designated scotch-irish. From New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Maryland, following the mountains and valleys of the Appalachian Range, they moved south ward, and settled in Virginia, North Carolina, and South Caro lina.
