The USS North Carolina was one of the most famous fighting ships of World War II. Sneed recounts how the state of North Carolina mobilized in 1958 to save the ship from the scrap heap and turn it into a memorial to the memory of those North Carolinians lost during the war. The ship is moored in Wilmington.
Sneed describes the historic Coolmore Plantation, located near Tarboro. Built in 1860 for J.J.W. Powell, a physician and cotton planter, this Italian villa is one of the most significant structures in North Carolina.
