Thank you for sharing more than 100 golden memories on Friday. I'd like to keep the century theme going today.

Let's name 100 interesting things about North Carolina. Please limit your remarks to one item per thread but return as often as you'd like. We'll keep the blog going til we have at least 100 comments.  If you like today's topic help make this a Golo Hot Topic by voting at the start of the comments section.

Think about important events that have happened here and prominent figures and places. Think about inventors and sports

I'll start:

North Carolina has the highest peak east of the Mississippi River in Mt. Mitchell at 6,684 feet.
