Coastal Defense As "Delaware Goes to War"

From the April 26, 2018, Delaware Online  "Coastal defense on display as Delaware 'Goes to War' this weekend"  Maddy Lauria.

Saturday the Fort Miles Historical Association will present their annual "Delaware Goes to War" program from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m..

They will recreate the surrender of the German submarine U-858 in May 1945.  That was the first foreign surrender on American soil since the War of 1812.

Fort Miles was a very active military base during the war.

They have installed lights on the observation tower Tower 3, one of eleven fire control towers at the fort.
