 History of Carolina Beach 

 Fort Fisher State Historic Site is located near Carolina Beach. It played a significant role during the American Civil War as a Confederate fort protecting the vital port of Wilmington.  

 Construction of Fort Fisher began in 1861, and it was named after Colonel Charles F. Fisher, a Confederate officer who was killed in the Battle of First Manassas. The fort was designed to be a formidable defense structure, encompassing earthworks, sand dunes, and heavy artillery.
