Eastern

The Final Voyage of the Agnes E. Fry

In 1864, a blockade runner ran aground on the coast of North Carolina. For decades, it sat within sight of shore, rusting, until finally disappearing beneath the waves. Now, it’s reappeared — and may prove to be the most significant shipwreck found in our waters in years.
