This Month in Black History
In January 1865 Union forces captured Fort Fisher in North Carolina.
Fort Fisher guarded the route to the port of Wilmington, North Carolina, which at the time was the South's last open seaport on the Atlantic coast.
The victory at Fort Fisher helped to seal the fate of the Confederacy.
Many African American troops took part in the victory and Bruce Anderson, who served with a white regiment, The 142nd New York Volunteer Infantry, received the Medal of Honor for his service during the battle.
