Formerly known as Fort Louis de la Louisiane when it was founded by French Canadians in 1701, Mobile boasts a rich history of over three hundred years. It was French Louisiana's capital until 1720 until, under the Treaty of Paris, it was transferred to British control in 1763. Several name changes followed, first to Fort Conde, then Fort Charlotte. Later the name underwent a translation to Fortaleza Carlota when it was occupied by the Spanish after the Battle of Fort Charlotte. Mobile finally became a part of the United States during the War of 1812. Mobile is also the home of the first submarine to successfully sink an enemy vessel. The H. L. Hunley, named after its maker, was built in Mobile, Alabama and fought for the Confederacy during the Civil War. Today, Mobile is a culturally diverse city, with British, African, French, Spanish, Catholic and Creole influence. Mobile also hosts the Carnival, which is a series of parades, balls and other festivities. Mobile has a variety of museums such as the USS Alabama and also has a number of historical buildings such as the Cathedral Basilica of Immaculate Conception.
