This July 17, 2012 photo shows a general view of Independence Square in downtown Charlotte, N.C. Delegates in town for the Democratic National Convention, which begins Sept. 3, will find several places in and around Charlotte where they can soak up a little political history and culture. The statue is one of four bronze statues at the intersection of Trade and Tryon streets representing commerce, transportation, energy and the future. (AP Photo/Chuck Burton) less
