There is only about 10% left of Fort fisher today. The
Peninsula is slowly eating away at the fort. Shepard's Battery and the
Sally Port are fully restored and visitors can walk around them. The
National park Service has also restored the 9 foot palisade fence around the
land face of the fort.
There is also a small monument commemorating
all those who died in the battle. If you follow interstate 421 to the
end of the Peninsula you will find the remains of the mound battery and
Battery Buchanan. There is a huge chunk taken out of the fort because
during WWII, the government built an air strip down the middle of the fort.
This destroyed much of the forts land face.
