• From wooden ships to the Battleship North Carolina, the book features every type of vessel that sailed into the Wilmington Harbor.
• The book discusses how Wilmington became North Carolina’s largest city from 1840 to 1910, and the exports, such as naval stores and cotton, that made it such an important trade center.
