Cape Fear Shipwreck Map.
Here is an overview
of the Cape Fear shipwreck wall map suitable
for framing. Centered around historic Wilmington, North Carolina,
Cape Fear (the southernmost North Carolina Cape) and the treacherous Frying Pan
Shoals. This beautiful chart has over 150 shipwrecks on it.
In addition to the many ships that met their end on Frying Pan shoals, a large number were lost while running the Union blockade during the Civil War. Wilmington was one of the last southern ports to remain open to the blockade runners which brought badly needed supplies to the South from Bermuda and the Bahamas.
Included on the chart are interesting stories about how thirty one ships sank, covering the period from the Civil War to World War II. Find out about the tanker that was torpedoed by a U-boat and broken in two. The crew had secured the watertight doors and its stern stayed afloat. Later, the stern was towed to Baltimore where a new bow was attached and the tanker returned to service!
