Across the Cape Fear River is Fort Fisher State Historic Park. John Mosely said that they had launched a special exhibit on the role and experience of black soldiers from the USCT in the Civil War and at the fort during World War II. That was just before the you-know-what hit and the fort was closed down.
"It is still up and in most cases, people haven't seen it," said Mosely. "We hope people will come check it out."
"We have also been doing fund raising for a new building (visitors center and museum to replace the current one built in the 1960s) and this exhibit is talking about some of the stuff we are working on the grander scheme of things."
I am also hoping they will start up their Beat the Heat Talks again.
The site, like most, is still in a bit of a holding pattern as it awaits for directives from the state regarding gathering size restrictions as COVID-19 cases decline but the risk remains high as the nation waits to be vaccinated.
