AN EXCITING DAY FOR ALABAMA PIONEERS!
We just launched our first Podcast, Alabama Grist Mill! This will be another medium to share lost & forgotten stories about Alabama as well as great historical events.
A grist mill in pioneer days was the place to hear all the news so Alabama Grist Mill seemed to be the perfect name for our new Podcast.
The first episode is about Massacre Island, the Russian Princess, and Mardi Gras. We want the Podcast to be more community-based and this seems to be a good way of doing it. Add your comments or additional information under this story and we may include it in an upcoming podcast.
After the Podcast was launched, Richard Cumbie provided AP with more validation about the Russian Princess story. Evidently, Alabama’s first historian, Albert J. Pickett included some details about it in his book, History of Alabama: And Incidentally of Georgia And Mississippi, From the Earliest Period, (Chapter XVII – Bossou’s visit to the French Forts upon the Alabama and Tombigby Rivers.)
So you want to know what we sound like, then check out the Podcast by clicking below to hear our first episode and don’t forget to share this post with your friends and family. A subscription to the Podcast is FREE!
Some of this story can be found in History of Alabama: And Incidentally of Georgia And Mississippi, From the Earliest Period by Albert James Pickett, Alabama’s first historian
