Cape Fear: River of Water, River of Time


Author(s):
Abstract:
The Cape Fear River is a history-filled waterway, having seen early European explorers, including English, French, and Spanish ply its waters; bustling commerce, especially naval stores from 1720 to the Civil War; and warfare, including Spanish harassment during the 18th-century and the Union's blockade during the Civil War. Today it is a quiet stream, inviting travelers back through time.
