Fort Fisher historic Civil War site         Broken link?

Until the final months of the Civil War, Fort Fisher kept North Carolina's port at Wilmington open to blockade-runners as the last supply route for Confederate armies inland. When the fort fell after a massive Union amphibious assault on Jan. 15, 1865, its defeat helped seal the fate of the Confederacy. Fort Fisher was reactivated in World War II to train anti-aircraft units.
About 10 percent of the fort still stands, along with a restored palisade fence. The N.C. Office of Underwater Archaeology has its headquarters there.
The state historic site's hours vary by season. It is managed by the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources ( Events at this and other state historic sites are listed at
