North Carolina History in the 4th & 8th Grades

17 Sep

It has been several years since I looked through a NC History book used in grade school.  However, I recall two things about the tome at the time:  There was a good deal of US History, not specific to North Carolina, and the NC history was lacking in any detail about the river steamboats that operated for many years and were a lifeline for families living near the river.

Hopefully, someday there will be an effort to incorporate a brief article about the Cape Fear River Steamers because the vessels, their captains, pilots, crews, owners, and stories are a rich part of North Carolina history.
