The Capture of the Hatteras Forts

The Capture of the Hatteras Forts
A newspaper clipping titled "The Capture of the Hatteras Forts." Written from the perspective of Union supporters, the article details the importance that capturing the forts and surrounding Albermarle and Pamlico Sounds will have on controlling North Carolina's influence on the Civil War, how it will open up paths into Eastern Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, and South Carolina, how it can help disrupt lines of Confederate communication, and how it will demoralize the South. Also detailed are the prisoners captured and arms seized. Clipping possibly from the Kinston Daily Tribune.
