Artist's Description

Before modern navigational tools made it possible for seafaring vessels to move down the coast of North Carolina and through the treacherous waters off the Outer Banks, lighthouses, dotted along the coast, aided in keeping sailors safe. The small village of Ocracoke is home to the final resting place of 4 British sailors who lost their lives during an attack on their ship by a U-boat during WWII. More than two hundred years ago, Edward Teach, otherwise known as the infamous pirate, Blackbeard, found the coves and inlets around Ocracoke to be perfect for him and made it his hiding place between raids.
