The Sidney Stockbridge Letters at Fort Fisher-- Part 1

From the Summer 2016 The Powder Magazine by Becky Sawyer.

In April 2016, the Fort Fisher State Historic Site was contacted by Joe Stockbridge of Surry, Maine.  He had a set of letters written by his great-uncle, Sidney Stockbridge who was serving on the USS Pawtuxet during the Second Battle of Fort Fisher.

One of those letters contained an account of the battle, a sketch of the fort and a souvenir of Colonel Lamb's signature.

Joe Stockbridge sent the original letter.
