In the winter of 1861, Union armies had failed to win any significant victories over their Confederate counterparts. The Northern populace, overwhelmed by the bloodshed, questioned whether the costs of the war were too high. During the first winter of America’s Civil War, Confederate forces were well in control of the fight. Then, Union general Ambrose Burnside marked the beaches of the Outer Banks and little Roanoke Island for an amphibious assault. His victory shifted control of the Sounds of North Carolina. Join author and historian Michael Zatarga as he traces the story of the crucial fight on Roanoke Island.
