Fun Facts: Blackbeard

The most famous pirate of all, Edward Teach, alias Blackbeard, used to scour these waters looking for lightly armed merchants to rob. He eventually died in a fierce battle at Ocracoke Inlet. His flagship, the ‘Queen Anne’s Revenge’ has only recently been found off the coast and is now being excavated. But his treasure, rumored to be buried on Ocracoke Island, has never been recovered.

Fun Facts: Torpedo Junction

In 1942 Germany sent its U-boat submarines to the poorly guarded Eastern Seaboard of the United States. During the first half of 1942, the German subs sank more than five dozen vessels in N.C. waters. Because of this, Cape Hatteras earned the moniker “Torpedo Junction.” Burning ships, gunfire and debris washing up onshore were common sights for the locals.
