Wilmington's General W.H.C. Whiting-- Part 1

From the Nov. 19, 2013, WWAY (Wilmington, NC) 3 ABC "Marking History: W.H.C. Whiting" by Tim Buckley. //// It is always great to get the Civil War out there in the news and this article included the video of the report. Worth checking out. //// Whiting was born in Biloxi, Mississippi, in 1824 and was a West Point graduate in Engineering in 1845, with the best academic record until Douglas MacArthur 60 years later. //// While at various postings, he married a girl from Southport, NC, (then Smithville) at the mouth of the Cape Fear River which connects Wilmington to the Atlantic Ocean. //// More to Come. --Old B-Runner
