There was a great book about it that I can’t seem to remember the name of that was big in Wilmington for a while. There’s actually a bunch of interesting stories around it being brought in. It was originally going to be decommissioned, but a bunch of schoolchildren and their teachers started a campaign to buy it from the Navy.

Then when they were bringing it into port, a tug captain messed up and ran the ship into a restaurant.

I *think* this is it: http://www.amazon.com/Battleship-North-Carolina-Horrell-Ramsey/dp/0895873397, but I’m not positive.
