Confederate Fortifications

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Interior of the principal Confederate fortifications near New Berne, N. C., after their capture by the Federal forces under General Burnside, March 14th, 1862. In our previous parts we have given so complete a narrative of the New Berne Expedition that a very few words will suffice to explain our sketch. Fort Thompson was one of the forts situated on the Neuse to defend the city against a naval force. Of the appearance after its capture our artist said: ‘Had the garrison been worthy of the fortification this place might have given our gunboats some trouble; but, after receiving a few of the well-directed shells sent by Commodore Rowan, the place was ours.’"— Frank Leslie, 1896
