The Darkest Days of Mobile
After four bloody years of fighting, Mobile was the last major city on the Gulf Coast remaining under Confederate control during the American Civil War. The forts guarding Mobile Bay were captured after the famous Battle of Mobile Bay. Seven months later, Union forces began the land campaign for the city which led to its fall.
