From the April 20, 2017, North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural resources.
The public is invited to attend the ceremony on Saturday, April 29, 2017, at 10 a.m. at the Confederate statue at Battle Acre at Fort Fisher.
The event is hosted by the Fort Fisher State Historical Site and the Fort Fisher Chapter 2325 United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC).
A new historical marker will be dedicated by UDC North Carolina Division President Peggy W. Johnson.
John M. Mosely, Assistant Site Manager at the fort will be the featured speaker and will address the attributes of the character of Confederate soldiers, sailors and Marines serving at Fort Fisher.
A color guard of the Columbus Volunteers Camp 794, Sons of Confederate Veterans will present the colors. There will also be a canteen ceremony and local historical organizations will place wreaths at the base of the Confederate monument.
I am sure my Friends of Fort Fisher and Federal Point Historical Society will also be there.
