Chris Fonvielle Leads: Walk to Sugarloaf

Saturday March 22, 2014 – 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Parts of the Civil War “Battle of Fort Fisher” were fought across the Federal Point peninsula well north of the Fort itself. And if you know where to look you can still see remnants of the trenches and embankments today.

Again this year Dr. Chris Fonvielle will lead this popular narrated walk from the Federal Point History Center (1121 N. Lake Park Blvd.) through the Carolina Beach State Park to Sugarloaf, a landmark on the banks of the Cape Fear River.

The walk will last about 2 hours. A $5.00 donation is requested and can be paid the day of the walk.

There is a limit of 25 participants so everyone can see and hear Dr. Fonvielle’s narration. Reservations may be made by calling the Federal Point History Center at 910-458-0502.
