I've published yet another Ocracoke Newsletter. This month I share Walter Howard's story of the wreck of the Black Squall (April, 1861). Walter was a wonderful writer, and the story is fascinating. The Black Squall was carrying a circus troupe from Havana to New York when it hit the beach on Ocracoke. The story was told to him by "Old Kade" who was 17 years old when the tragedy happened.
You can read the story here. Enjoy!
