A major source of materials goods for the Confederacy and its troops, Fort Fisher’s attack challenged General Braxton Bragg’s boast of its impenetrability and the South’s victory. The Union armada of 64 ships such as the Colorado, Powhatan, and Wabash assures the defeat, despite the efforts of military leaders such as Fort Fisher’s commander, Colonel William Lamb.
