Native American History Tour

Native American History Tour – Summary

Russell County, Alabama was prime Native American territory.  The capital of the Muskogee Creek Indian confederacy.  A land greatly desired by the Spanish, French, and English settlers.  Its abundant rolling hills made for good ground to set up forts to watch for approaching visitors, and enemies, from miles away.

The Native American had a strong presence in this area.  You’ll hear how they thrived as a nation of many tribes, but eventually fell into the hands of the U.S.  As a result, their forced exodus to Oklahoma, the Trail of Tears.

Historic Fort Mitchell will be the featured fort, a tour within the tour abounds.  Ride along the paths that once was The Federal Road.  Plus, a solemn visit to the Fort Mitchell National Cemetery.
