Wilmington's Fort Anderson-- Part 1

Fromthe Feb. 8, 2015, Wilmington (NC) Star-News "Book review: Fort Anderson and the Battle of Wilmington" by Ben Steelman.

The 150th anniversary of the fall of Fort Anderson, defending Wilmington, N.C., on the Cape Fear River, will take place this week, and, just in time for it, Chris E. Fonvielle Jr, associate professor of history at University of North Carolina- Wilmington has a reprint of his 1999 short history of Fort Anderson "To Forge a Thunderbolt" released.  The previous edition has long been out of print.

This new edition will have much added to it, including orders of battle for both sides and the history of Fort Anderson's long-lost garrison flag which has been since found.
