Charlotte Fire Department Helps Search Civil War Shipwreck

From the April 11, 2016, WSOC TV, Charlotte, N.C.

The North Carolina State Department of Natural and Cultural Resources said that the Charlotte Fire Department had arranged to bring in a sophisticated 3D SOAR device to confirm the shipwreck's identity.  It will be used by divers next Wednesday.

The shipwreck is thought to be that of the blockade-runner Agnes E. Fry, sunk off the Wilmington coast in December 1864.
