The Essential Men of the North Carolina Confederacy

This exhibit examines the personal reflections and motivations of the Captains and Pilots of blockade runners that sailed into and out of North Carolina's main Civil War port, Wilmington. This exhibit uses collections from the Captains and Pilots themselves describing their experiences while sailing their vessels and draws conclusions from their experiences as to why they chose to participate in the ordeal.
