NC - Kure Beach (US-421) - Fort Fisher

Written by Lee Wonnacott.


This earthen works fort enabled southern blockade runners to keep the Confederate States alive until it was overrun by Union forces in early 1865. Not much of the battleground still exists, but you do get a sense of how difficult it must have been to attack the fort. Fee free.
