Brunswick Town and Fort Anderson historic site         Broken link?

A major pre-Revolutionary port on the Cape Fear River, Brunswick Town was home to two royal governors and was the center of the naval stores industry. It was razed by British troops in 1776 and never rebuilt.
During the Civil War the Confederacy constructed Fort Anderson atop the town's remains as part of the river defenses below Wilmington.
Colonial foundations dot the tour trail that crosses the earthworks of the fort, the site of ongoing archaeological study. In the late 1950s and
early 1960s archaeologists uncovered foundations from Brunswick's earliest days, the most visible being the walls of St. Philip's Anglican Church dating back to 1754.
