Fort Fisher and the Campign for Wilmington

"Thus ended the greatest bombardment ever known in modern warfare [and] the largest hand-to-hand fight in our civil war, and the struggle inside the fort was unsurpassed in stubbornness. Our casualties were not known as the roll was never again called . . . . After the battle was over, seeing so many of our comrades alive and able for duty, was a cause of deep gratitude to Almighty God."
  Sgt. T. C. Davis, 40th North Carolina Regiment, Garrison of Fort Fisher.
