HISTORICAL SITES IN ALABAMA

In order to better provide precise information for our diverse readership, we would like to point out that we differentiate between the words “historic” and “historical.” We use “historic” in the context of describing famous or important places and events.  “Historical” is used  when describing places or events of the past that have no great significance today but may be of interest to some.

Bibb-County-Alabama

Historic Places and Ghost Towns in Bibb County Alabama

Bibb County was established in 1818 and called by the name of Cahaba. Two years later it was changed to that of Bibb, in honor of William W. Bibb, the first Governor of the State.

Bibb County was one of the largest counties in the State; but a great deal of its area has been cut off to make up the surrounding counties established later on in the history of the State.

Fort Williams to Horseshoe Bend

Fort Williams to Horseshoe Bend

 
In March 1814, General Andrew Jackson mobilized the Tennessee Militia, made up of Volunteers from the East and West Tennessee Militias and the Thirty-Ninth U.S. Infantry for a full-scale campaign against the Red Sticks. General Jackson’s army totaled about 3,000 men. Jackson’s army left Fort Williams on the Coosa River (Mississippi Territory) and marched 52 miles through the forest in three days. Fort Williams, located at the mouth of Cedar Creek and the Coosa River in what is now Talladega County, Alabama was constructed in 1814 to serve as a supply depot preparatory to the Battle of Horseshoe Bend on March 27, 1814. Jackson and his troops made camp six miles north of Horseshoe Bend.

White Bluff

Chalk, a soft, extremely fine-textured variety of limestone, occurs in the Coastal Plain section of west-central Alabama. Originally formed as the floor of an ancient sea, the chalk can be seen along prominent bluffs on the Tombigbee River. White Bluff is a historic site located in Demopolis, AL, which owes its character and natural beauty to the underlying chalk rocks.
