Cast Away on New Adventures in Wilmington & Island Beaches
This museum tells the story of the segregated Marine Corp in the early days of WWII. It tells the history of black American heroes that fought not only the war, but the bigotry of the South, both for the opportunity to stand up and fight for their country, and the respect of doing the same job as their white counterparts. The museum has a 90 millimeter M1A1 anti-aircraft weapon system, which was the primary weapon the Montford Point Marines used to train with and it has been returned to its rightful resting place.
