Abstract:
In 1880, the Outer Banks Pea Island Lifesaving Station was the nation's only station entirely manned by African Americans. Led by Richard Etheridge, the men earned a reputation for skill and courage during Reconstruction, a time of prejudice and racial tension. An example of their daring work occurred on the night of October 11, 1896, when the E.S. NEWMAN, a three-mast schooner, was caught in heavy, hurricane created seas off the coast. Etheridge and his men fought through the dangerous storm currents and brought the ten men aboard to safety.

Abstract:
Part four of Gerard's eight-part series on the Civil War is about many of the runaway slaves from the eastern portion of the state who stole away along the rivers and swamps, desperately trying to reach the ocean and the \"nautical Underground Railroad.\" Before the war, slaves fled oppressive lives for a chance of freedom in the north but during the war many runaway slaves took up the Union's fight. Taking advantage of war time chaos, runaway slaves fled to the Atlantic shore and enlisted with either the Union Army or Navy.
