On May 4, the Confederate ironclad CSS Albemarle engaged seven Union ships in Albemarle Sound. The Albemarle severely damaged two ships and the rest withdrew. The only real damage sustained by the ship was a smokestack riddled with holes. To mark the 150th anniversary of the battle, Wallace Abernathy and Walter White are building a replica of the smokestack which will be attached to the Albemarle's replica now docked in Plymouth.
