North Carolina Shipwreck Chart: Cape Fear and Frying Pan Shoals
Condor: This 300-ton Side-wheel steamship was built in Scotland for the Confederate government. On October 1, 1864, while approaching New Inlet, Condor was chased by the steamship USS Nipon. The captain was able to escape, but ran his ship aground near New Inlet. One of the passengers, Rose O'Neal Greenhow, a Confederate spy, was carrying a bag of gold around her neck. She insisted on being taken ashore so she could deliver it to the Confederate government. A large wave upset the boat, and Mrs. Greenhow drowned, dragged under by the weight of the gold. The Condor was a total loss.
