September Programming and Fall/Winter Hours
Aboard the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA
WILMINGTON, NC August 27, 2013 – The Battleship NORTH CAROLINA announces the programming schedule for September, 2013.
The Battleship has sponsored “Living History” weekends, called “Battleship Alive,” since 1997. “Living History” brings historical events, places and persons “alive” for the public by demonstrating various aspects of the past and allowing interaction with the interpreters. The Living History Crew (LHC) gives insight into the daily life and routine of the crew aboard the USS NORTH CAROLINA by explaining the duties specific to the sailor’s ratings (jobs) and demonstrating activities that occurred aboard the ship. The WAVES/Home Front interprets the lives of women who served in the Navy and of the women on the home front during the war. Included with Battleship admission.

The Battleship NORTH CAROLINA is self-supporting, not tax supported and relies primarily upon admissions to tour the Ship, sales in the Ship’s Store, donations and investments. No funds for its administration and operation come from appropriations from governmental entities at the local, state or federal levels.
