MM’s Memorial Day Forecast

I hope you enjoy the changes you see with the website!

On This Day

1830- A devastating tornado strikes Charlotte and surrounding areas. The tornado levels all but two buildings, including the first courthouse — a two-story brick structure. The Voorhies-James house and one other building are the only ones left. Most public records from the courthouse, as well as those housed in law offices, are blown into the countryside. Some are recovered, but many are never found. Some books are found several miles away. The roof of the jail is found 13 miles away. Charlotte is located about 40 miles west of Nashville.

1868 – “Decoration Day”, later called Memorial Day, is first observed in northern US states.
