Reagan Statue Created By North Carolina Artist

A longtime reader and frequent contributor pointed out another North Carolina/President connection. The statue of Ronald Reagan that was just installed in the National Statuary Hall Collection was created by Chas Fagan, an artist from Charlotte.

Another North Carolina First

We all know that North Carolina claims a lot of “firsts.” In fact, we blogged about it last year, “First In Digital?“. I have to admit that I found one recently that I did not know. Instead of telling you what it is, however, I’ll turn it into a trivia question. This “first” involves the soldier pictured below; can you tell me what it is?

By the way, I haven’t verified the claim. Maybe one of our readers knows more?
