The Mariners museum has the turret of the Monitor on display. It was raised from the floor of the ocean off the coast of cape hatteras where it sank
in a storm in Dec of the same year as the battle. The ship was less than a year old. Two sailors recovered during its raising were buried in Arlington
We also host the annual blackbeard festival to celebrate Blackbeards gory demise on the prow of his ship when they displayed his severed head for all
A few miles north of here Cornwallis surrendered to George Washington in the battle of Yorktown and the first settlement of this great land was in
Jamestown just south of that site.
I'm surrounded by and steeped in history here which I love.
