Overview

The story of Wilmington, North Carolina, is a story of rivers, sounds, and sea, and of a city that grew near the places where those waters mingled. It is the story of a port that became the “Lifeline of the Confederacy” as well as the lifeline of a state. And in this case, it is the story of more than a hundred years of history, beginning in the 1860s, told through more than 125 photographs—the captured essences of people and events now lost. With a selection of fine historic images from his best-selling book Historic Photos of Wilmington, Wade G. Dudley provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of Wilmington. Remembering Wilmington captures many of the city’s well-known places, people, and events, along with lesser known but also important moments of time that helped shape this great American city.
