Don't Leave Your Shoes At Home!

This interesting tidbit came from the Google book, The Hamrick generations: being a genealogy of the Hamrick family, by Stephen Collis Jones. It was published in 1920.

"… The first General Assembly ever held in North Carolina—so authentic history states—was in Pasquotank County, North Carolina, near Nixonton, under a giant .oak tree, on the left hand side of the road. It is interesting to note that one of the by-laws of that Assembly admonished that "all members should wear shoes, if not stockings, during the sessions of the body, and they must refrain from throwing chicken and other bones under the tree."
