January 18, 2014 - Active duty and retired soldiers volunteer their time as re-enactors to teach living history at the anniversary commemoration of the battle of Fort Fisher, the South's last open sea port at the end of the Civil war. Fort Fisher was all that stood between the Union and the city of Wilmington North Carolina, its fall in January 1865 opened the door for Federal forces and closed the door to the sea for the Confederacy forever.
The soldiers tell why they participate in re-enactments and what living history means to them.
