Civil War Summer Program

Saturday, June 28th, 2014

Thousands of people traveled to Fort Fisher Saturday for a summer program offered by Friends of Fort
Fisher.
The program “Waves of Fire and Smoke and Deadly Showers of Cast Iron: Artillery at Fort Fisher” taught not only
the history of the Fort, but the importance part that artillery had on the Fort during The Civil War.
We asked Executive Director for Friends of Fort Fisher, Paul Laird, why it was important to have offer the
program?
Laird replied “Americans and people from abroad for that matter understand our history, our heritage as a
country, what divided us as a nation, what reunited us as a nation. The Civil War was a pivotal point in our
development as a nation so the country, the liberties, and the freedoms we enjoy today are a direct out growths
of The Civil War.”
The event featured firings of the site’s 32-pound seacoast rifled and banded cannon.
Along with, teaching the field artillery drill using a 12-pound bronze Napoleon full scale reproduction cannon.
Laird says he is amazed of how much visitors know about the site before visiting and that it’s really a 2-way
street when it comes to learning.
This is one of many summer programs offered at the Fort Fisher State Historic site.
