Fort Morgan

Fort Morgan was built at Mobile Bay, Alabama, in 1834. It was used by the South during the Civil War, until it was captured by the Union shortly before the end of the war. It was later used during World War I to train troops, and also served as the location of a radio transmitting and receiving station for military purposes.
