Union ships chase the blockade runner Ella ashore on Bald Head Island as she tried to enter Old Inlet on December 3, 1864. Over the following two days, Confederate soldiers from Fort Holmes salvaged goods from the derelict vessel before she was destroyed by Union gunboats. Her remains are located about one mile off the South Beach.
