World War II: Through the Eyes of the Cape Fear is a joint project between the University of North Carolina Wilmington's William M. Randall Library and the Cape Fear Museum. The website's creation was funded by the North Carolina Exploring Cultural Heritage Online (ECHO) grant, awarded by the Library Development Section of the State Library of North Carolina.
The World War II experience was pervasive in the lives of people connected to or now living in Southeastern North Carolina. Both Randall Library and Cape Fear Museum's collections provide a wide array of primary research materials to better study and understand this history.
