World War II: Through the
Eyes of the Cape Fear
is a joint project between the University of
North Carolina Wilmington's William M. Randall Library and the Cape Fear Museum. The
website's creation was funded by the North Carolina
ECHO (Exploring Cultural Heritage Online) grant, awarded by the
Library Development Section of the State Library of North Carolina.
World War II experience was pervasive in the lives of people connected to
or now living in Southeastern North Carolina. Both Randall Library and
Cape Fear Museum's collections provide a wide array of primary research
materials to better study and understand this history.
