The Coastal Chronicles Volume II


More stories from the colorful past of the Cape Fear and North Carolina coast! In this volume, you’ll read the true stories of Blackbeard the pirate, the Battle at Moores Creek, the Wilmington Riots of 1898, and about the only time the U.S. Marine Corps has been refused a beach.

Plus stories about the British raid on Beaufort during the Revolutionary War, running the Union Blockade during the Civil War, King Hancock’s bloody warpath and much more! All stories are true, factually accurate, and written as a storyteller or fiction writer would, so they’re not the same old dry names and dates you got in your school books.  There’s no reason a true story can’t also be an entertaining story!
