Ghost Ship: The Mystery of the Carroll A. Deering | Episode 1, part 1, “A Ghostly Monument”

This episode is about a ship, the Carroll A. Deering, whose crew mysteriously disappeared without a trace off the Outer Banks of North Carolina in late January of 1921. Our archivists, Donna Kelly, Stuart Parks, and Chris Meekins, give background on the ship and her crew; elaborate on the treacherous nature of the “Graveyard of the Atlantic”; and give details about several attempts to board the ship, once it is spotted run aground on Diamond Shoals.

See the documents mentioned in the episode at the State Archives of North Carolina's History For All the People blog.
