Relive history at Fort Fisher event

The year 2010 marks the 145th anniversary of the end of the Civil War. To commemorate the Second Battle of Fort Fisher, the Fort Fisher State Historic Site will stage a three-day anniversary event Jan. 15-17.

This year’s program takes a new look at Fort Fisher as it was during the Civil War. The event kicks off at 6 p.m. Jan. 15 at UNCW’s Fisher Student Center with a panel discussion titled “Black Men Bearing Freedom: U.S. Colored Troops and their impact on North Carolina.” Continuing with this theme, Dr. Richard Reid, author of “Freedom for Themselves: North Carolina’s Black Soldiers in the Civil War Era,” will present a talk Jan. 16 at Fort Fisher State Historic Site.
