RALEIGH, NC Mar. 6, 2014 – On March 6, 1863, only one week into blockading duty, the USS Peterhoff met an untimely end, south of New Inlet near Confederate-held Fort Fisher. The incident was the result of a misunderstanding. Off-duty blockading vessels were not supposed to travel inside the blockading lines at night, but the wooden-hulled, screw steamer USS Monticello violated that rule while heading to Beaufort for refueling, and in the process, mistook the Peterhoff for a blockade runner. The Monticello rammed the Peterhoff and, in less than a half hour, the latter lay on the bottom of the sea. The audacious captain of the Monticello, Lieutenant Commander William B. Cushing, was not held responsible, nor was the ship’s […]
RALEIGH, NC Mar. 7, 2014 – On March 7, 1914, George Herman Ruth Jr. hit his first home run as a professional baseball player and was given the nickname “Babe” in Fayetteville.

A few weeks later, the team headed to Fayetteville en route to Florida for spring training. While in Fayetteville, the players learned that Dunn had legally adopted Ruth to keep him with the Orioles. That, combined with Ruth’s playing on the elevators at the Lafayette Hotel, resulted in the older players teasing him as “Dunn’s baby,” later shortened to “Baby” and “Babe.” […]
