In the spring of 1861, Confederate authorities dismantled and removed the first-order Fresnel lens from the 1859 Pensacola Lighthouse. During the Union bombardment of Pensacola in November 1861, the lighthouse was struck by several shells and slightly damaged. After Union troops reoccupied the city in 1862, the lighthouse was relit with a smaller fourth-order Fresnel lens in December of that year. The Pensacola Lighthouse Association provides lighthouse tours and operates the Richard C. Callaway Museum in the restored 1869 Lighthouse Keeper’s Quarters.
