Pender County Library
Thursday, February 23rd at 6pm
Forgotten Forts of the American Revolution presented by Dr. Chris E. Fonvielle Jr. at the Main Library in Burgaw.
The 1776 Battle of Moores Creek Bridge, the first pitched engagement in North Carolina during the Revolutionary war, is a well known event locally, what many are unaware of is that this was not the only significant event during the war in Pender County.
Join us for a presentation by Dr. Chris E. Fonvielle, Jr. and hear the stories of two other significant Revolutionary War sites - both feature prominent earthworks that have survived rampant regional growth and development for 243 years, learn how and why they came to be built and what role they played in the last years of America’s War for Independence.
