Over two hundred years ago, Duncan King, one of North Carolina's contributions to the then popular vocation of privateering, was roving the seas, sailing under the British flag and fighting for Great Britain. A native of Scotland, King chose North Carolina as his home and operated from there. Captain of a privateer, an officer under General Wolf at the Battle of Quebec, and a millionaire, King now lies buried in a forest in Columbus County.
