The construction of the Neuse started in November of 1862, said Morris Bass, operations manager of the CSS Neuse Interpretive Center. She shelled Federal positions, and then she received orders to scuttle the ship to prevent it from being captured by Federal troops. A ship that has found a permanent home at the CSS Neuse Interpretive Center on Queen Street in Kinston. It takes just a little bit of that story that has fascinated people for over 150 years, the American Civil War, and shows how Kinston played such a part, said Bass.
