Six Reasons to Visit Fort FisherThis Weekend-- Part 1: Col. Lamb's Cottage

From the January 13, 2017, Wilmington (NC) Star-News by Paul Stephen.

The 152nd anniversary of the Second Battle of Fort Fisher was commemorated the next day.  I was 50 miles away, but busy clearing everything out of Mom's condo at Topsail Beach to attend.  I sure would have rather been there.

"History is alive this weekend as an army of re-enactors pay tribute to the 152nd anniversary of the Battle of Fort Fisher Saturday.  If you haven't attended one of the yearly remembrances, let us give you a few reasons to change that.

1.  A NEW EXHIBIT:  Site officials will debut a recreation of Confederate garrison commander Col. William Lamb's cottage -- a permanent addition to the Fort Fisher visitors center -- during the festivities.
