Cape Fear History Symposium: Focus on Forts

Learn the story behind the brick and stone.

Are you a history fan that likes to learn about the past by getting up close and personal with it?

Perhaps you are someone who has visited us before, noticed the brick, stone, and concrete fortifications on campus and wanted to know more about them.

If so, you aren't alone, and we want you as our guest!

The Cape Fear History Symposium's 2018 event is a 2-day trip to the past where guests will not only meet, eat, and sleep at Fort Caswell, but will enjoy a program topic that we've never offered before. Hear from the nation's leading experts on U.S. Coast defense history through a series of lectures and seminars, witness a live artillery demonstration, and tour the campus with the experts, getting up close with the relics and ruins as you learn about them.
