Confederate General William Whiting was fatally wounded during an attack on Fort Fisher by the Union in 1864. The fort protected the last remaining river route used by blockade runners who supplied the Confederacy with the goods they needed. With the Union taking the stronghold, the war was practically won.
Now, General Whiting is seen roaming the remains of the fort at dusk, wearing his grey uniform. He has been known to stand on the old parapet, watching the road.
