Fort Fisher commemorates 149th anniversary

Sunday, January 19th, 2014

FORT FISHER, NC (WWAY) — Fort Fisher commemorated the 149th anniversary of its pivotal civil war battle Saturday.

Period clothing and uniforms were all the rage as visitors experienced living history.

This year’s program featured Civil War medical services.

Organizers say events like these are important for educating the public and remembering what’s important.

“Lives were lost here and we can’t lose sight of that, we never want to do that. We never celebrate war, we’re simply commemorating it,” said Fort Fisher spokesman Si Lawrence. “It was a huge battle here and most importantly Fort Fisher was a key part of the civil war battle for the confederates.”

Fort Fisher is North Carolina’s most visited historical site, and events like this draw thousands annually.

Lawrence said they’re expecting next year to bring in the largest crowd yet, in honor of the 150th anniversary.

Preparations for the sesquicentennial are already underway.
