Carolina Beach Town Hall (NC) Gets Historic Fort Fisher Exhibits-- Part 2

Continued from June 10, 2016.

The Friends  of Fort Fisher were determined to get the exhibits back, but all of these dioramas were inserts, which means they had to be in cabinets.

The cost was between $8,000 and $10,000 and four cases were delivered to the town hall and one to the National Guard Training Facility.

The displays officially opens Tuesday night, June 14th, right before the town council meeting.

Some of the exhibits:

A blockade-runner running the blockade, building Fort Fisher,  Hebe incident when the blockade-runner Hebe ran aground and the Whitworth Flying Battery was used and, the capture of Fort Fisher.
