This is the interior of Fort Fisher, at the Petersburg National Battlefield. Federal troops at Fort Fisher were responsible for the massive frontal assault on Confederate positions on April 2nd 1865, which brought about Lee's retreat towards Appomattox. http://ow.ly/Rvp730nZwFW
My friend Graham, visiting from Japan, is fascinated by the American Civil War and has dreamed of visiting some of the battlefields. So we drove up to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. He’s so knowledgeable about the details of each battle that he put me to shame. He was thrilled to see one of the war’s most important battlefields so beautifully preserved.
