As Civil War buffs, we wanted to see the site of Castle Morgan, a POW camp run by the Confederates. It was small in reference to others, but played a huge role in the Sultana disaster. It was advertised as an archeological site. It may be, but the ruins are almost gone with only a few small (and old decaying) signs to interpret the area. It is the first capital of Alabama, but without the handout guide, could be any overgrown wood lot in the state. It needs more financial support to become a first rate tourist stop.
