Exhibits at the Baltimore Civil War Museum highlight the city’s ambivalent role in the bitter 1861–65 struggle between North and South. Baltimore was a station on the "underground railroad" by which fugitive slaves escaped to the North, but it was also home to many Confederate sympathizers. There were riots when Union troops passed through the city. The museum closed in 2007 but has since reopened on a part-time basis with limited weekend hours, with the help of volunteers from a group of interested museum supporters, the Friends of President Street Station.
