    The remains of the large wooden ship were left on the shore for nearly a decade until it was burned for its iron fittings during World War II. 

    The remains, a charred wooden skeleton of the ship’s hull, can be seen from time to time with the shifting sands. 

    “This shipwreck is just one of hundreds that have crashed along the North Carolina coast, which gained the name the Graveyard of the Atlantic,” officials with Cape Hatteras National Seashore said on social media. “With the shifting sands, shipwrecks will be uncovered and recovered over and over again.”
