New Inlet Was to Create New Empire

Record #:
In 1825, the State of North Carolina engaged the services of Hamilton Fulton, described as a distinguished engineer from England, to ascertain the importance, practicability, and expenses of reopening the inlet at or near Nag's Head. Fulton's report favored such changes, commencing a quarter century of agitation to accomplish the most ambitious and fascinating project in the state's history to that time. This is the concluding article in a series digesting the report of Major Walter Gwyn to the N.C. Internal Improvement Commission in 1840.
