We Now Have Copies of Chris’s New Book For Sale


We now have Chris Fonvielle’s newest book on the Glory at Wilmington: the Battle of Forks available for purchase at $19.95 (+ $1.40 tax) for each copy. Chris says it’s a limited edition, and has signed each copy. He printed only a few hundred copies, so when it’s gone, it’s gone. Since the History Center is closed, you may mail us a check (for $21.35) or leave a message on the answering machine at 910-458-0502,  and we’ll contact you for your credit card information or send an email to:
