The Battle of Mobile Bay Civil War Trail is over 90 miles long, stretching from the Gulf of Mexico to north Mobile County. All along its length you’ll discover the sites of famous Civil War battles and learn about the day to day life of average sailors, soldiers, and civilians during America’s Civil War.
The Battle of Mobile Bay Civil War Trail includes over a dozen of Alabama’s Civil War sites. Key parts of both the Battle of Mobile Bay and the Overland Campaign make up the trail.
