Friends of Fort Fisher Kick off 2016 Summer "Beat the Heat" Lecture Series

From the June 16, 2016, Friends of Fort Fisher.

This is the first of nine different topics ranging from Fort Fisher, the Civil War, local N.C. and U.S. history.  many of the speakers have also authored books which will be for sale at the fort's museum store and happily signed.

On June 18, Site Interpreter Ray Flowers presented "Incidents, Accidents and Other Doleful Events: Hors de Combat on the Lower Cape Fear."    he will be sharing anecdotes concerning Civil War casualties in the area other than at the two battles of Fort Fisher.

The talks all beginning at 2 p.m. in the E, Gehrig Spencer Auditorium at the Fort Fisher State Historic Site Museum.  They are free and open to the public and held because of contributions from the Friends of Fort Fisher, New Hanover County and the towns of Carolina Beach and Kure Beach.
