The Globe Hotel and Bermuda National Trust Museum

St.George's, Bermuda

During the American Civil War, Bermuda was central to Confederate blockade-running efforts due to its excellent harbors and proximity to Southern ports. The Globe Hotel served as the headquarters of Confederate purchasing agent Maj. Norman S. Walker throughout the war. Now the Bermuda National Trust Museum, it features a permanent exhibit called Rogues and Runners: Bermuda and the American Civil War. Among the items on display is a rare copy of the Great Seal of the Confederacy, which was smuggled through the island.
