: I'm curious as to why the state of No. Carolina didn't keep the fort in tact rather than dismantle it. Seems like a waste to me. Surely there was some historical value to it as a reproduction of a stockade fort. I know there are civil war forts in NC, because we vacation 1/2 mile down the beach from one.
Although I am not sure; nor do I really know; but I would imagine that the reason that the fort sight was not kept up was because it did not met standards (government/state/county/city) as to a "stucture" to be walked on. This is a very serious thing to "build to code"; if the public were to be able to walk on it; I'm sure that the movie would have had to take measures to reinsure all kinds of "yes, it can.."
Consider this: the set of the "Titanic" in Mexico, is not able to have anyone see it; be on it or do anyting about it...(what a money maker!)...there's the rub; movie sets are not ment to be walked about as much as I or any of us would like to! (I sure wish the fort was up, also!)
