Tracing Cape Fear Legends and Lore

Record #:
Wilmington's Oakdale Cemetery is 160 acres of almost 200 years of Cape Fear history, marked by the gravestones of the famous and the less celebrated citizenry. Among them are gravestones of Rose Greenhow, the Confederate spy; Henry Bacon, the architect of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.; and a tugboat captain who died fighting a fire in Wilmington and was buried with his dog who tried to save him.
