Mystery envelopes so much of North Carolina's coastal history that it's hard to tell where fact ends and legend begins. Here you'll find cannon balls recently pulled from Blackbeard's sunken ship. Hear speculations of what might have become of Roanoke Island's vanished colony. Walk sandy beaches with wild horses whose ship-wrecked ancestors swam for their lives and reached the shore. Inland from the southern Beaches is Wilmington, a city where even the movie business claims a trailer or two of North Carolina history.
