In July 1863, a Federal force destroyed communication lines on the Wilmington and Weldon Railroad and burned down the Confederate armory at Kenansville. The armory, owned and operated by Louis Froelich, had provided swords to the State of North Carolina. Because the armory was burned, only one sword has been positively identified as a Froelich sword.
