Was Bragg at Fault for the Loss of Fort Fisher?

Record #:
Major-General William H.C. Whiting was the district commander at Wilmington, and in 1864, General Braxton Bragg was sent to take over his duties. In January 1865, Union forces launched their attack on Fort Fisher and in a few days captured it. Pleasants examines two options that Bragg had that might have saved the fort and \"concluded that General Bragg was the major culprit behind the fiasco\" that cost the Confederates their coastal stronghold.
