About this title

Synopsis:

There is one place in North Carolina with a history of active service that stretches from our earliest colonial days right up through the War on Terror. Fort Johnston, named after one of North Carolina s five royal governors, has guarded the Cape Fear since 1748. It has seen service in virtually every war America has fought for more than two and a half centuries, and witnessed everything from Spanish pirates to British redcoats, Confederate soldiers wearing butternut and gray, to modern soldiers supplying the munitions American soldiers need to defend our nation on battlefields across the world. The names of the men associated with Fort Johnston reads like a Who s Who list of people who played important roles in the history of North Carolina and the nation: Josiah Martin, Major General Robert Howe, Col. James Moore, President James Monroe, Henry Clay, John C. Calhoun, Gen. Nelson Miles, Gen. Alfred H. Terry, Abner Doubleday - all have ties to this one-of-a-kind piece of North Carolinas colorful past. This is Fort Johnstons story, one that spans more than 250 years. This title in The Young Readers Series of North Carolina History is sure to please!
