Abstract:
The Fayetteville Arsenal and Armory was one of several along the Atlantic seaboard intended to store arms for quick and systematized distribution. Such a facility was part of a growing concern for national defense following the War of 1812.

Abstract:
Built in 1836 by the federal government, the Fayetteville Arsenal constructed and stored guns and ammunition, while providing jobs and bolstering the local economy. At the start of the Civil War, it came under Confederate control and was the South's second-largest domestic weapons source. When General Sherman captured Fayetteville in March 1865, he ordered the arsenal destroyed. Today the foundation stones of the arsenal are part of the Museum of the Cape Fear Historical Complex.
