North Carolina in the War of 1812

North Carolina's service in the War of 1812 was more in a supporting role. Only one raid occurred in the state, although England did blockade most of the United State's Atlantic coast, which did impact North Carolina as much as it impacted many of the other states. However, it can be assumed that many served in Virginia, which had many battles along the Atlantic coast. It can also be assumed that the blockade caused many to traverse overland routes to get their products to market and more entrepreneuring individuals to use other means of making ends meet. Piracy and privateering also flourished.

Between 12-16 Jul 1813, the British successfully raided Ocracoke Inlet, a channel through the Outer Banks into Pamlico Sound. This was a route used by American merchantment as an alternate route around the British blockade at Chesapeake Bay. The British captured a number of vessels and confiscated stores and livestock from Ocracoke and Portsmouth.
