Abstract:
In April 1864, Confederate forces attached the Cape Lookout Lighthouse. The subsequent reports stated both lighthouses at Cape Lookout were destroyed “so they can never be repaired again.” This, in fact, was not the case. The older 1812 lighthouse had been damaged but was not in use during the time of the attack. The newer lighthouse, built 1859, had only suffered damage to the lens and stairs. Within a short time, the 1859 light was returned to working order.
