“The hornet’s nest of rebellion” was how Charlotte was described by Lord Cornwallis during the American Revolution, where he received a hostile welcome. Up until 1849, the city was the nation’s center of gold production. They diversified the manufacturing of food products, machinery, metal, and textiles. They eventually became one of the United State’s most valuable banking centers. The city was home to the most significant banking corporations such as Bank of America, Trust Financial, and the east coast operation for Wells Fargo, along with other financial institutions. Charlotte was described as abundant in natural beauty and metropolitan splendor. The city is a mixture of early risers, night owls, and those that are seeking an all-day adventure.
