Exhibit planned at the NC Maritime Museum in Southport on September 18-19

The NC Maritime Museum in Southport will present

World War I and Life-Saving Service Living History Weekend
on September 18 (10am – 4pm) and
September 19 (noon – 4pm), 2021
inside and on the grounds of the
NC Maritime Museum at 204 East Moore St, Southport.

The Friends of Fort Caswell Rifle Range (FFCRR) has been invited to create an exhibit to share our recently published book, Brunswick County in the Great War.

The FFCRR exhibit will include several pictorial displays to present the contents of the book.

One will show the history of stabilizing the 1918 Fort Caswell Rifle Range. You can read more on the Stabilization page of this website.

Work is proceeding on additional restoration work, which will be shared on this website soon!


Several photos from the World War I Wall of Honor will be displayed.


A photo of the Brunswick County World War I Monument at the rifle range will be shown, along with brief histories of the Brunswick County men who gave their lives in World War I.

An additional display will show photos from several WWI Profiles included in the book. The WWI Profiles can also be selected and read using this webpage.

The WWI Profile display will include a World War I photo that Trudy Young shared, which shows Company G of the 56th Engineers upon their completion of service in WWI.

Trudy’s uncle Wagoner John Daniel Eriksen may be found in the photo of 232 men whose names have been identified from the US Army Transport List on return from France. According to an archivist at the NC Archives, these panorama photos are unique to WWI. This is your opportunity to see this rare photo.

We hope to see you there!
