This chapter revisits North Carolina's four-hundred-year history of migration to the state. It first describes the arrival of Europeans, the first immigrants of North Carolina. Next, it discusses the “century of immigration”, the period of migration in post-Civil War North Carolina when an estimated 33 million people arrived in the state between 1820 and 1920. The chapter also considers the historical factors that have shaped current national and state trends, including immigration reforms and migration flows for three centuries.

Keywords:   Europe, Africa, North Carolina, immigration, migration, post-Civil War, immigration reforms, migration flows
