Just got back from a trip to the Outer Banks, NC. I was hoping to get in a stop at a CW site along the way. It worked out but only had a few minutes. The stop was at the Port O'Plymouth Museum in Plymouth NC. Great little museum. Much more than what I expected. And they have the 3/8 scale replica of the CSS Albemarle. I highly recommend this as a stop for anyone passing through that area.
