Set in what is left of the old President Street train station, this little volunteer-run museum tells of some of Baltimore's remarkable moments in Civil War history. Exhibits filling the arched entrance hall tell the stories of the station's role in the Underground Railroad, President Lincoln's stop here in 1861, and the moment when the first blood of the Civil War was shed here on April 19, 1861. You can't miss this 1800s-era structure, set among the gleaming skyscrapers now filling Harbor East.
