S. Federal Navy engaged the Confederate States Navy in the Battle of Mobile Bay, resulting in the largest and bloodiest  naval battle of the Civil War.  Soon following, over 100,000 Union Army troops moved into the area, most advancing through Baldwin County, aiming to close the Port of Mobile.  The Museum’s extensive collection of Civil War artifacts will tell the stories of those 1864 battles with weapons, letters, uniforms, and soldiers’ personal items and equipment.  Maps, battle plans, documents and photographs recounting the events will be displayed.  Models of ships and earthworks will detail how the battles were planned and what actually happened on those local battlefields.  Baldwin County During the American Civil War: The War Comes Home! will be displayed on the second floor gallery through December 2014.   Civil War- themed speaker presentations, music shows, lectures, demonstrations and other events are planned to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the events on Baldwin County soil.
