Abstract:
Wilmington's Oakwood Cemetery is one of the most historic cemeteries in the South. The first person buried there was on February 5, 1855--Annie, daughter of the cemetery's president. Since then over 20,000 have been buried there, some extraordinary, others ordinary people. The cemetery still has about a hundred funerals a year. Eric Kozen, who has twenty-seven years in the horticulture business and who has been a site manager at Arlington National Cemetery, is the cemetery superintendent. In his article Rowe relates how Oakdale became the first cemetery in the state to be part of a Rural Garden Cemetery Movement and what relatives of the deceased did on Sundays.

Abstract:
For the first seven months of World War II, German U-Boats ruled the Eastern seaboard of the United States. Waters off North Carolina's Outer Banks were a favorite hunting ground as night after night explosions at sea signaled the sinking of another Allied ship. By the time the Germans withdrew their U-Boats in July, over 400 ships were sunk or damaged from New England to New Orleans and 5,000 sailors were killed. Over sixty ships went down off the Outer Banks.
