Two Wilmington Civil War Battles Being Re-enacted This Weekend

This is shaping up to be another big weekend for Civil War and history buffs in the Wilmington, North Carolina, area.  Last month, they had the huge Fort Fisher Re-enactment and this weekend it will be the turn of Fort Anderson and Battle of Forks Road.

I am kind of wondering, however, why they would have both on the same weekend.  Fort Anderson was evacuated on February 19, 1865, so that could be commemorated this weekend.  The Battle of Forks Road took place Feb. 20-21, 1865, so could have easily been held next weekend.

I always hate when they have two things at the same time that I want to do.
