Millions of visitors have strolled through Fort Macon, located on Bogue Banks across from Beaufort and Morehead City. But few visitors know the details of the fort's fall to Union General Ambrose Burnside on Friday, April 25, 1862. This article contains an account of the battle given by an unnamed correspondent for the NEW YORK TIMES, an eye-witness to the attack, reprinted in its entirety as it appeared in the paper.
