Civil War

Spring, 1861. The American Civil War erupts and Baltimore finds itself at the crossroads of the North and the South. A passageway to the North and a border state to the South, Maryland was home to both Unionists and Southern sympathizers. Maryland was a slave state at the beginning of the war; however, free African Americans made up a quarter of Baltimore’s population.

Today, Baltimore is replete with sites and attractions connected to the Civil War. The USS Constellation, the Baltimore Civil War Museum at President Street Station, the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture, the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum, and Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine, among many others, will satisfy any history buff’s interest in Baltimore’s role in the Civil War.
