Causes Won, Lost & Forgotten: How Hollywood and Popular Art Shape What We Know about the Civil War

Most Americans, though, get their ideas about the war–why it was fought, what was won, what was lost–not from books but from movies, television, and other popular media. In an engaging and accessible survey, Gary W. Gallagher guides readers through the stories told in recent film and art, showing how these stories have both reflected and influenced the political, social, and racial currents of their times.

Moved by their love for the Cape Fear River, the owners decided to found Wilmington Water Tours in order to share with others the history and beauty of this region. Their passion gave rise to The Wilmington, a fully enclosed and handicapped accessible (with some restrictions) motorized catamaran, which can accommodate up to 49 passengers. Come explore the Cape Fear River on one of our many cruises!

Fun Day

Our family did the Eagles Island tour. We enjoyed smoothies while the tour guide shared some neat facts. Perfect weather and the tour was entertaining. Our kids enjoyed it and my husband and I as well. We would definitely go back. It was a pleasant want to end our stay in Wilmington.

Loved It

The guide was very knowledgeable and the entire staff was friendly and courteous. We're already planning on going back next summer and doing the trip north. I would highly recommend to anyone. Not only will you learn about the area, but it is a very relaxing and enjoyable ride on the river.

Great Cruise

What a nice way to wind down the day. The operators are truly welcoming and very knowledgeable. It was a very hot day and we had some time to kill before dinner and this was perfect. We got to watch the sunset from the river and we learned more about the city we visit often.

Relaxing

We really enjoyed the ride and seeing the working port of Wilmington. We even got to see a couple ships coming in, so that was a bonus. The narrator/captain was friendly and made the cape river cruise fun and interesting. It was a perfect way to pass the time on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.
