USS North Carolina Battleship Memorial
The Immortal Showboat — our monument to the "Greatest Generation." Standing with quiet dignity across the river from historic downtown Wilmington, North Carolina beckons visitors to walk her decks and absorb the history her veterans made in the Pacific Theatre during World War II. North Carolina (BB55) engaged America's enemies in over 50 separate battles, earning 15 battle stars — more than any other U.S. battleship in World War II. Surviving a direct hit from a Japanese torpedo off Guadalcanal in 1942, she ended the war with a loss of 10 men killed in action and 67 wounded.
