Fort Mitchell, Alabama

Southwest of Columbus GA on the banks of the Chattahoochee, this national historic site was an interesting and educational outing. We enjoyed meeting the Dell, the Director of the museum and historic grounds. It’s lovely when someone is passionate about their work. She showed us one of her personal archeological finds. Can you guess what it is? After watching the film about the fort and viewing the displays in the museum , we visited the reconstructed fort buildings. Our favorite site was the hilltop walking trail and park honoring the Creek Nation. They were descendents of the people who had lived in this area for 10,000 years, before being ousted by the new settlers. Especially moving was the central Sacred Fire sculpture.
