Fort Fisher Junior Reserves--'The Art of the Sailor'

Event Description

Fort Fisher's 2019 Junior Reserves summer season continues with 'Art of the Sailor.' Participants will see how rope played a vital role in the life of a Civil War sailor, as it was used to anchor the ship, control sails, moor the vessel, and hoist materials on board. Come have some fun and learn some basic knots and other secrets of the Civil War sailor. The program is free, but donations are welcomed. All Fort Fisher programming is made possible through the generous support of the Friends of Fort Fisher, the support group that supports the site, the town of Kure Beach, the town of Carolina Beach, and New Hanover County. Program components are subject to change or cancellation due to weather or other factors.
