Wreck of the Black Squall
This month our Ocracoke Newsletter is a video. In February island resident and professional videographer, John Rogers, made a seven minute recording of me telling the story of the 1861 wreck of the two-masted sailing vessel Black Squall. The ship was sailing from Cuba to New York City with an exotic cargo when it was driven ashore on Ocracoke Island by gale force winds.
