Camp Lejeune Marines Retrace Army's Approach on Fort Fisher in 1865

From the Feb. 27, 2014, WECT 6, Wilmington, NC. //// Marines from Camp lejeune took a march back through history when they marched nine miles from Carolina Beach, NC, through Kure Beach and on to Fort Fisher, taking the same route as Union troops back January 13-15, 1865, in the Second Battle of Fort Fisher. //// Today, that route follows Old Dow Road, Harper Avenue and Lake Point Boulevard. //// And, I'm sure some of it was along US-421, which has a terminus at the Rocks by Battery Buchanan. //// And, we still have no idea why General Bragg did not attempt to attack them. //// --Old B-Runner
