Ft. Fisher Shall Rise Again

Record #:
Work on a restoration project of Fort Fisher has started on a 180-acre tract of land, held by the state of North Carolina under lease from the Federal Government. Long range plans call for clearing the site, building a visitor center and museum, creating trails, erecting markers, and restoring several segments of the fort, such as gun mounts and underground magazines. Of critical importance to the Confederacy for protection of shipping in and out of Wilmington, Fort Fisher was subjected to the biggest naval bombardment of any land position in history, falling into Union control in 1865.
