Abstract:
Nazi attacks on shipping along the Atlantic prompted a patriotic group of civilians to assist the overextended Navy. Volunteer pilots from Florida, New Jersey, and the Carolinas banded together to form the Civil Air Patrol. These pilots took it upon themselves to assist the Navy in spotting enemy U-boats along the east coast. Their presence was felt as the war record reflects; 24,000,000 airplane miles, 173 submarines identified and 57 were bombed, 363 stranded survivors of plane crashes or sunk vessels found, and the pilots also reported any mine warfare.

Abstract:
In May 1788, Captain Boritz sailed his vessel Holy Heart of Jesus, loaded with cannons, to America. The Swiss manufactured cannons were purchased by Congress at the bequest of delegates from Virginia and North Carolina. The captain arrived July 1788 at South Quay, Virginia where representatives from the state paid for the guns with tobacco. North Carolina had insufficient tobacco to pay and the impatient captain dumped the cannons overboard. Several of the cannons were recovered and in 1944, they were displayed in front of several prominent Edenton institutions.
