CHAPTER 70 AN ACT TO ESTABLISH THE NORTH CAROLINA AMERICAN REVOLUTION BICENTENNIAL COMMISSION. WHEREAS, there is approaching the bicentennial of the American Revolution, in which North Carolina played a major and leading part that needs to be made better known both to our own citizens and to the nation at large, and WHEREAS, the experience of our own State and of other States of the Union has proven in the past that several years of advance planning and effort are required in order to make such a commemorative celebration fully successful, and WHEREAS, other States of the Union have already begun to take the necessary steps toward the suitable commemoration of this bicentennial, and WHEREAS, it has been established that such commemorations are very much worthwhile in making our people conscious of the importance of their heritage: Now, therefore, the General Assembly of North Carolina do enact:

There is hereby established the North Carolina American Revolution Bicentennial Commission, which shall consist ex officio of the Director of the Department of Archives and History; the Director of the Department of Conservation and Development; the Superintendent of Public Instruction; the heads of the history departments (or equivalent departments) of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina State University, North Carolina College at Durham, East Carolina College, Western Carolina College, Appalachian State Teachers College, Wake Forest College, Duke University, and Davidson College; the State Regent of the Daughters of the American Revolution; and ten members to be appointed by the Governor, two for a term of one year, two for a 104 term of two years, two for a term of three years, two for a term of four years, and two for a term of five years, and as the terms of each group expire, their successors shall be appointed for full five-year terms.
