Fort Fisher was once the most important fort in the Confederacy as
it protected Wilmington's blockade-runners entering and leaving the
Cape Fear River. Built of sand, Fort Fisher repulsed a December 1864
attack before falling in January 1865. Now a state park, Fort Fisher
is home to the ghost of a defending general and stories of how important
the capture of this fort was to the Union.
Cape Fear Museum
This modern museum features many Civil War exhibits, including a fascinating
diorama of the final Battle of Fort Fisher.
Quiet now, Wilmington's waterfront was once bustling with sleek, fast,
blockade-runners smuggling in everything from
gunpowder to ladies' lace. Your guide will describe the ships and
the adventure of blockade running.
Now a state park and one of the best-preserved dirt forts in the nation,
Fort Anderson surrendered after Fort Fisher fell. However, it fell
so quickly that the Union army occupied it before the Union navy knew
no Confederates were left. The Union army had to run up a white flag
so the Union navy would stop shelling the fort.
In March 1865, 8,000 Confederate soldiers faced off against 30,000
Union soldiers in these flat fields in order to set up an ambush at
Bentonville. A small museum is on site.
Now a state park with an original house once used as a hospital, this
battlefield was North Carolina's largest baffle. Its loss sealed the
fate of the state and opened the way for Union General William T.
Sherman to start planning North Carolina's surrender.
Museum of History's Civil War Exhibit
This museum has one of the finest exhibits of Civil War artifacts
and photographs ever-assembled in one place. The entire
exhibit focuses on North Carolina soldiers at home and on distant
It was at this state park built around the Bennett Fann where Confederate
General Joseph Johnson surrendered to Union General William T. Sherman,
effectively ending the Civil War in the eastern theater.
Fort Macon in Morehead City
This state park fort fell in just one day of fighting, but not before
it's sickly commander had his chance to prove his and his men's bravery
to the Union soldiers.
New Bern Academy - Set up as a Civil War hospital, this museum shows
how ghastly Civil War medicine was. Enjoy a walking tour of some of
the houses occupied by Union officers during the War.
