Fort Morgan, Mobile Bay, Alabama, USA

From last weeks tour.

Allegedly built by 200 slaves “rented” by US gov’t from plantation owners between 1819-1834.

Multiple batteries added later.

Scale of structure & Arches awfully impressive for unskilled labor.

Some of the stories about how these were built are hilarious, aren't they? :)

No, that's not quite true - ALL of the stories about how they built are hilarious.

Lol, yes absolutely fantastical musings. :D

The narrative that the batteries were built later is obvious because they look like crap with much lesser quality construction compared to the original star....kinda like building architecture all over the flat.

The brickworks involved stagger the mind.
