The scent of musket fire remains in the air, and if you listen hard you can hear cannon fire, screams of soldiers, orders being barked, horses neighing. Fort Fisher is a National Historic Civil War Landmark found on a slim finger of land below Wilmington, North Carolina.
A boardwalk takes you through the wetlands. A relatively short walk, the boardwalk takes you around the earthen bunkers, through the salt marsh and beneath towering live oaks.
It is very quiet.
Ocean-going vessels can be seen traveling to the Atlantic where once a great battle raged.
Besides our talking the only sounds were of wind and birds.
A great place for reflection.
Wind-swept live oaks.
My favorite trees.
