The Civil War years at Ocean Isle Beach (1860 to 1865)

-A A +A
By Staff Brunswick Beacon

Ocean Isle Beach saw a good deal of Civil War naval action between blockade-runners of the Confederacy and gunboats of the Union Navy.

Confederate solders were stationed along Ocean Isle Beach to protect blockade-runners using Tubbs Inlet or Shallotte Inlet. If a blockade-runner had to be beached to avoid capture, the ship’s crew would frantically unload cargo while the land soldiers held off Union gunboats.

North Carolina provided more troops to the Confederacy than any other state, and many of these soldiers came from Brunswick County.
