The Outer Banks is much more than an idyllic vacation destination.
A day at a time through history, it has claimed its place as a
colorful region of the Old North State. Author and historian Sarah
Downing offers a daily look at the quirky and fascinating stories
from the region's four-hundred-year history. During a fierce
hand-to-hand battle off Ocracoke Island on November 22, 1718,
Lieutenant Robert Maynard killed the infamous pirate Blackbeard
with five pistol shots and twenty sword cuts and slashes. On
February 14, 1992, a sick seal caught a ride to safety on a Coast
Guard patrol boat. Add a salty slice of history a day or a month at
time with this celebration of Outer Banks heritage.
