The Coastal Chronicles Vol. III
North Carolina and the Cape Fear have a vivid history that stretches for more than four centuries. Early explorers, Native America nations, pirates, Redcoats and Patriots, Billy Yanks and Johnny Rebs, U-Boats and Space Shuttle astronauts - the Tar Heel State can claim it all! In the pages of Carolina Chronicles Magazine (formerly Coastal Chronicles Magazine) , we tell those stories - true, factually accurate, and written as a storyteller would - to share the fascinating people and events of North Carolina's storied past. In this volume, you will find stories about: Tar Heel doughboys in World War I, the clash at Fort Dobbs in the French & Indian War, a floating theater that brought Broadway to secluded coastal communities, a firsthand account of the fall of Fort Fisher, what sharecropping was like in Depression-era North Carolina, and much, much more!
