U.S.S. North Carolina: State’s Biggest Ship Still Packs Them In

Record #:
North Carolina’s largest and most famous battleship, the U.S.S. North Carolina, is inactive but remains as a popular tourist attraction along the Cape Fear River in Wilmington. The U.S.S. North Carolina was the only American battleship to have participated in all twelve major United States Naval offensive operations in the Pacific during World War Two. Today, the battleship serves as a memorial to the North Carolinians who served during the war.
