Baltimore Civil War Museum / Riot walking tour

Baltimore Riot

The Baltimore Riot in 1861

601 President St, Baltimore MD 21202 (President Street Station)

Civil War Trails interpretive markers trace the evolution of the April 19, 1861, Baltimore "riot" that erupted when Union soldiers destined for Washington DC made their way from the President Street Station to the Camden Railroad Station. The Trail follows the fate of the 6th Massachusetts Regiment as the soldiers battled angry secessionists for two hours through downtown Baltimore. The preserved President Street Station today is home to the Baltimore Civil War Museum with excellent exhibits relating to the Riot and Baltimore's role in the Civil War.
