About this title

Synopsis:

A Secret History Of Brunswick County - From the earliest days of European exploration to the golf courses and beach resorts in this fascinating and fast-growing region, Brunswick County has attracted settlers, invaders, and visitors of all descriptions. In these pages you'll read about Steve Bonnet, the "Gentleman Pirate," who hid his ships in Brunswick's moss-draped creeks but unfortunately underestimated the ebbing tide; "Mrs. Calabash," who's said to have lent her name to the famous sign-off for Jimmy Durante's classic radio shows; and Topsy the Elephant, who swam for the Brunswick riverbank after breaking loose from circus handlers in the 1920s. Follow the struggles and victories that shaped Brunswick County, from the first contact of Europeans with native Americans, to successive administrations of the Lords Proprietors, the royal governors, the British crown, and the leaders of a new nation-many at whom hailed from this small but influential corner of North Carolina. Discover Brunswick's rich Civil War history, scenic roadways and waterways and current-day towns and townships. Tales of the Silver Coast, recounts the tales of privateers and plantation owners, politicians and Prohibition rum-runners and the many colorful people and diverse places of southeastern North Carolina.
