Constitution And Citizenship Day Ceremony Held

Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site

National Park News

Twenty-five North Carolina residents became new citizens during a ceremony at Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site on Constitution and Citizenship Day on September 17th.

This was the fourth ceremony held in partnership with USCIS North Carolina Office and the only ceremony held in western North Carolina. The new citizens were from fourteen countries worldwide, including Canada, China, Equador, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Poland, Russia, South Korea, Sudan, United Kingdom, Moldova, Ukraine and Vietnam.  The ceremony took place at the amphitheater of Carl Sandburg Home NHS at 10:30 a.m.

Carl Sandburg spent a lifetime capturing the American experience through poetry, writing and song.  His experience as a first generation American from Swedish parents shaped his outlook on the country.  He used his words to champion civil rights, equal rights, child labor laws and a democratic America.  It was very fitting for Carl Sandburg Home NHS to host a ceremony welcoming the next generation of America's immigrants.
