Ft. Morgan in Alabama

There is so much history contained in this area that it is truly impossible to talk about all of it. Therefore, I will give a very brief synopsis and then show pictures that were taken at this famous site.

Ft. Morgan was constructed in the early 1800s on Mobile Point. The fort was seized from the Federal government by Alabama during the Civil War and used to allow confederate supplies to come in. Later Admiral David Farragut captured the fort for the north. The fort continued to be used off and on all the way through World War II. In 1947, it was turned over to Alabama to be used as a historical park. The park also includes a museum with many interesting artifacts from throughout the history of the fort. The fort is located in a wildlife refuge. It also has a beautiful beach and fishing is allowed.
