Blackbeard's Cannon

Posted June 21st, 2013 @ 12:14pm

Blackbeard's ship has surrendered more of its historical treasures.  Two cannon were raised from the wreck of the Queen Anne's Revenge off the coast of Carteret County.  A dive expedition had hoped to bring up eight cannon, but efforts were hampered by bad weather - until Thursday.  There's a nearly half-million-dollar effort underway to remove all the artifacts from the ship by the end of next year.
