Civil War Lecture: The Battle of Mobile Bay

The General Lew Wallace Study & Museum will continue its Civil War lecture series on Thursday, May 1, at 7:00 p.m. in the Carriage House Interpretive Center at the Museum.

Civil War historian Alan Hinds will discuss the Battle of Mobile Bay in detail, using¬†handouts and sequential battle charts. The Battle of Mobile Bay was one of the few naval engagements between the North and South. Crawfordsville native General Edward Canby, one of Lew’s friends, was present with the land troops during this campaign.

Alan Hinds is past president of the Indianapolis Civil War Round Table.
