Celebration at Fort Fisher: Recalling the Parties of Daisy Lamb - October 23rd

Event details: 10/23/2010 from 10:00am to 4:00pm

Fort Fisher waltzes back in time as we recall the parties of Daisy Lamb, a Northern woman married to the fort's Confederate commander, Col. William Lamb. Experience the music of the era with traditional and popular musical performances throughout the day, featuring the highly acclaimed Huckleberry Brothers. Listen to the music and possibly learn some new dance steps as civilian reenactors engage our visitors in 19th century dance.

Step into Daisy's world as site historian Ray Flowers delivers a talk on this Northern lady and her Southern officer and for the first time see a temporary exhibit on Lamb artifacts recently acquired by the museum.

Visitors can pick up copies of period recipes used by Daisy Lamb and women in the Wilmington area, and kids of all ages can participate in hands-on activities.

Cap off your visit to Fort Fisher with special firings of the site's 32 pounder, rifled and banded cannon, atop Shepherd's Battery.
