Ghostships Giving Up Secrets on Our Coast

Record #:
In a new chapter for North Carolina's shipwrecks, skin divers are bringing up some of the secrets of the ocean depths. The latest target has been the Confederate blockade runner FANNY AND JENNY, which lies in shallow waters off Wrightsville Beach. One of several Confederate blockade runners to be lost along the North Carolina coast, the FANNY AND JENNY met her fate bound from Bermuda to Cape Fear, and is believed to have a cargo of valuable goods such as a solid gold, gem encrusted sword intended as a gift to General Robert E. Lee from British sympathizers.
