UNC alumni to recreate early student's walk to Chapel Hill
Thu Jul 31, 2008
Three young UNC alumni plan to re-create one of the most famous treks in Tar Heel history this month - the walk that UNC's first student took to class. Nick Becketti, Bryan Jones and Whitney Reeds plan to duplicate the feat of Hinton James of New Hanover County, who arrived at Chapel Hill to enroll on Feb. 12, 1795. According to historian William D. Snyder, James made the entire trip, approximately 170 miles, on foot.
