January 12th will mark the official 154th anniversary of the Battle for Fort Fisher, and people from all walks of life are invited to come and learn about one of the most brutal and famous battles in American History.  Uniformed re-enactors will be on hand to answer any questions you have about the daily routines and drills that soldiers of the Fort experienced as well as their sacrifices.  Live artillery demonstrations will include the firing of several historic weapons including the site’s 32-pound rifled cannon, and local photographer Henry Taylor will also be on hand to demonstrate his 1860’s wet plate style photography.  From lectures to secret Civil War Communications, there is historical fun to be had for everyone down at Fort Fisher! Located at 1610 Fort Fisher Blvd South on Kure Beach, this event is free admission for all.

The Cameron Art Museum, located at 3201 S 17th St, is well known in Wilmington, NC for its dedication to artwork of all types.  From now until January 13th, Art of Illumination lets your creative intuition come alight in this dazzling display of illumination using silks, handmade paper, glass, clay, and other handmade creations from artists across America.  These creations all work to capture and magnify light in ways that you never thought possible and can be seen weekly on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.  Admission is included with a museum entrance fee!
