Ft. Fisher Described

Record #:
Fort Fisher, located at the convergence of the Cape Fear River and Atlantic Ocean, is an area also known as Federal Point or Confederate Point. A key position and fortification for Southern militia during the Civil War, the location ultimately fell to Union forces on 15 January 1865. The end of the Civil War closely followed this event, overshadowing impending repercussions that are often overlooked. The loss of Ft. Fisher opened the Confederacy up to attacks along the Cape Fear as well as the loss of Wilmington, known as the great importing depot of the South.
