Fort Hancock was erected in 1778 to guard the entrance to Cape Lookout. A gift from the French Foreign Ministry, the fort and accompanying munitions and supplies were given to support Americans in their search for freedom. Several Comtes, Generals, and Admirals all served at the fort during the American Revolutionary War. The fort was dismantled in 1780.
