  • Le Fort Louis de la Mobile, dénommé également Fort Louis de la Louisiane, car situé en Louisiane française, fut construit dès 1702 près de l'embouchure en eau profonde du fleuve de la Mobile en Alabama. Il servit pour des raisons politiques, militaires et religieuses. Le fort abritait la résidence de Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville et de ses officiers, ainsi que la chapelle et plusieurs autres structures. Le site colonial a été répertorié dans le Registre national des sites historiques le 6 mai 1976 et site national historique le 3 janvier 2001. Ce fort fut édifié après l'édification de deux premiers forts français situés au Sud du vaste territoire de la Louisiane française. (fr)
