Fort Fisher Commemorates the 150th Anniversary

From the Jan. 2, 2014, Port City Daily.com "Fort Fisher presents living history program to acommemorate the 149th anniversary of the Battle of Fort Fisher." //// The program will be held January 18th at the Fort Fisher State Historic Site from 10 AM to 4 PM. //// The fort has gained a lot of publicity from the big role it played in Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" movie where the president was carefully following events transpiring there. //// "Always Near the Front, with Instruments & Tournequets: The Medical Service at Fort Fisher" living history program will be presented that day. //// In addition, artillery re-enactors will drill and fire the fort's banded 32-pounder and 12-pdr. napoleon. One re-enactor will portray a Civil War photographer. //// More to Come. --Old B-Runner
