The First Battle of Fort Fisher-- Part 6: Aftermath

Confederate reinforcements under General R.F. Hoke were in Wilmington and arrived at Confederate Point just as the last Union forces departed from the beach on the 27th.

The Army transports returned to Hampton Roads to prepare for a second attack on Fort Fisher, while Porter's fleet remained in the Wilmington-Beaufort area and continued sporadic bombardment in an effort to prevent repair to the fort.
