To seal off the bend of the river, the Upper Creeks built an incredibly strong 400 yard long barricade made of dirt and logs. As the Cherokee and Lower Creek warriors swam the Tallapoosa and attacked from the rear, Jackson launched the militia and regular soldiers against the barricade. Facing overwhelming odds, the Red Sticks fought bravely yet ultimately lost the battle. Over 800 Upper Creeks died at Horseshoe Bend de...

Florence in Alabama

Florence in Alabama If you've never spent time in Florence, Alabama, you might be pleasantly surprised at our cultural life. You might also think we were a city three times our actual size! Within our city, you'll find a home designed and later added on to by Frank Lloyd Wright, which was in the original family's possession until 1999. We have a beautiful art museum, which hosts a variety of exhibits and educational programs and a state-of-the-art library that opened in 2002. Florence is the birthplace of W.C. Handy, Father of the Blues, and his home is now a museum; there's also a museum at a Native American burial mound, located near the banks of the Tennessee River. This is not the extent of our cultural life, by far! Our University, ...

Nome Nome is said to be an abbreviation for No Name, and to many people it sounds like the end of the world - which it is. Nome sits at one of the westernmost points of the North American continent on Norton Sound of the Bering Sea, 102 miles south of the Arctic Circle and 160 miles east of Siberia. No highways connect Nome to the outside world, although there are about 300 miles of roads which lead to nearby villages. Nome is 539 air miles from Anchorage. Nome is unlike most other small isolated towns in Alaska in that it did not have its beginnings as an Eskimo settlement, although nearly half of the 3,500 inhabitants today are of Native American decent. The town was officially established in 1901, as a gold-rush boom...


Petersburg Petersburg.... The Little Norway of Alaska Petersburg was founded by a Norwegian and to this day it still celebrates its heritage by observing Norwegian Independence Day on May 17th with parades, races, games and events at the Sons of Norway Hall. The small tour boats which ply the Inside Passage stop at Petersburg for Norwegian dance demonstrations and local sea food. Until recently the major economic industries were commercial fishing and logging - but over the last 20 or so years logging has been on the decline - so now tourism is catching up with about 40,000 visitors a year. The population fluctuates around 3,000 people, less in the winter, and more in the summer when the salmon canneries employ many summer...
