On January 18th and 19th, 2020, Fort Fisher State Historic Site will commemorate the 155th anniversary of the Second Battle of Fort Fisher. As a descendant of those who served at the Fort or who fought during the 1865 Wilmington campaign, you and your family are invited to participate in Friends of Fort Fisher's Descendants Reunion on Saturday, January 18, 2020.
The event was designed with your feedback in mind. Doors will open at 7:30 am for check in and a continental breakfast. Beginning at 8:00 am, we will host a series of speakers and finish with time devoted to ancestor testimonies - a chance for you to share your ancestor's story and a chance to mingle with your fellow descendants. Our speakers include favorites Dr. Chris Fonvielle, Rod Gragg and Richard Triebe. We will also have a presentation on the new Visitors Center and expanded earthworks.
