Mobile AL is on the Gulf of Mexico and near the Mississippi border. Mobile's population was about 29,000 in 1860, making it the 4th largest CSA city and the 27th largest in the US. Mobile's cotton exports were second only to New Orleans in the 1840s.
The Dramatic Club's grounds are said to be on government street, per the May 7, 1868 Montgomery Advertiser. The grounds may be where the modern Spanish Plaza is in downtown Mobile, off Court St. Spanish Plaza Park is at 401 Government St.
