For this one day only, a special 25% discount will be offered on all museum shop merchandise, so visitors can stock up on gifts for the history enthusiast on their list.
Before the conclusion of the program, the Friends of Fort Fisher will announce the winner of the 2014 rifle raffle, at which a lucky ticket holder will win a reproduction Civil War Springfield Musket. Raffle tickets are available right up until announcement time, but you need not be present to win.
