Fort Fisher Summer Lecture Series: The Kure Beach U-boat Attack

Today, Saturday, July 9, Ev Smith gave a talk at the Fort Fisher State Historic Site on "The Kure Beach U-boat Attack."  A German U-boat supposedly surfaced and opened fire in July 1942 at the Dow Chemical plant by the ocean at Kure Beach, a couple miles north of Fort Fisher.

Did it happen or not?

Fort Fisher was again in use during World War II when it served as a center for anti-aircraft training..  This resulted in an airstrip being build which obliterated some of the fort's dunes.
