In the Civil War, there was no fort more important than Fort Fisher. Guarding the Cape Fear River and the port at Wilmington, North Carolina, the fort was the largest in the Confederacy. As long as it stood guard over the blockade runners bringing in much needed supplies to the South, America's bloodiest war could drag on and on. By 1864, the Northern generals knew Fort Fisher had to go. This is the story of their attempts to capture the fort, and the story of the brave men on both sides who fought to defend their homes and nations on the sandy beaches of the Cape Fear. The outcome of the battles at Fort Fisher would decide the fate of the nation. Would Union troops fail, and as a result see the country forever split? Or would they succeed, and finally see North and South once again together as the United States? The answers are inside!
