Fort Anderson/ Brunswick Town in N.C. Now Fully Staffed

From the July 29, 2015, State Port Pilot" by Jason Tyler.

The two newest employees have given up more lucrative jobs elsewhere to be full time historians.  Site manager Jim McKeeammon announced that Nick Monroe, 31, and Jesse Bricker have been hired, bringing  the staff up to full strength.

Nick Monroe graduated from UNC-W and recently completed internships at the Cape Fear Museum and Fort Fisher.

One of their main Fort Anderson projects is the excavation of a gun emplacement.  A 32-pdr. cannon replica arrived earlier this year and will be placed on a platform at the emplacement.
