What is Bagdad beach?

What is Bagdad beach?Bagdad beach is located on the gulf coast of Mexico. The place played an important role during the Civil War of America in the 1860s. The town of Bagdad established in 1848 was an insignificant port till the beginnings of the civil war. When Lincoln blocked US ports for use by the defiant southern states, which formed into the Confederacy, the latter turned to the neutral Mexico for the use of Bagdad port for their cotton exports. So the town boomed during the Civil War. However, with the defeat of the Confederacy and the end of the Civil War, Bagdad too declined. Its port was closed when the area was hit by a cyclone in 1889. Now, there are no traces of the port town but the beach is used for recreation. It is the centre of a festival called the Festival of the Sea.
