    Charlotte Liberty Walk

    The May 20th Society is pleased to announce that May 2012 will mark the unveiling of the Charlotte Liberty Walk – an interactive walking tour of Charlotte’s Uptown Revolutionary War sites. Modeled on Boston’s Freedom Trail, the CLW will link together 15 sites that made Charlotte what British General Cornwallis called a “hornets’ nest” of rebellion. Each site will be linked together with a round, granite marker engraved with a silhouette of The Spirit of Mecklenburg – artist Chas Fagan’s bronze equestrian statue on the Little Sugar Creek Greenway. The May 20th Society has partnered with artist Dan Nance and HandHeldHistory to create an interactive video montage for each site. HHH’s application will use GPS tracking technology so that each site will come alive on a hand held electronic device, such as an i-phone or i-pad. In partnership with the City of Charlotte, Central Piedmont Community College, Charlotte Center City Partners, the Arts & Science Council and the Convention & Visitor’s Bureau, the CLW is set for formal unveiling at Noon on Friday, May 18, on Independence Square in uptown Charlotte. For more information, please visit the Charlotte Liberty Walk on Facebook.
