Adventures in Alabama: Yankees in Fort Morgan
Fort Morgan overlooks Mobile Bay and was attacked by the Yankee army in 1864 when Admiral Farragut sailed his wooden navy into Mobile Bat. It's a kid's paradise of steep stairs, cannons, batteries, dark and deserted bunkers and storage rooms.
Ryan had never been to Fort Morgan, and I always believe it's productive to immerse him into Southern history and heritage. So we went.
Halfway through our tour, I realized I was wearing a Yankees cap. I have no idea why I would wear a Yankees cap to Fort Morgan. It's sacrilegious, disrespectful, and just plain stupid. Southerners take this stuff seriously.
