Historic Fort Morgan, at the mouth of Mobile Bay just 23 miles west on Fort Morgan Parkway, is one of the most captivating attractions in the area. The fort was named in honor of Revolutionary War hero Daniel Morgan. Construction was completed in 1834, and was first garrisoned in March, 1834. In the American Civil War during the Battle of Mobile Bay, Union land forces besieged Fort Morgan. It was during this battle that Admiral Farragut is remembered in popular culture for his famous order, “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!” General Richard L. Page, commander of the fort, was forced to surrender on August 23, 1864. Fort Morgan was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1960. Today, explorers are able to tour the tunnels, attend bird banding sessions, witness reenactments, and enjoy candlelight tours.
