History of Mobile

Mobile was founded over 300 years ago by French explorers and was named as the capital of colonial French Louisiana. The French ruled for 60 years and constructed Fort Conde during this period. Fort Conde was so large that it would encompass a majority of what is downtown Mobile today. Other the next century, Mobile was ruled by the British and the Spanish until the United States took possession of the city in 1813.

It was also during French rule that the country’s first Mardi Gras was observed. The celebrations were dormant during the Civil War but saw new life following the war. It was Civil War Veteran Joe Cain who resumed carnival and is responsible for the celebrations we have today.
