Alabama #4

Before we delve anymore into the history of Alabama it is probably a good idea to see exactly where it is.  If you are anything like me you have only a vague idea about this country's geography.  I knew Alabama was in the deep south but really hadn't realized it was as deep as you can get without falling into the Gulf of Mexico.

Tennessee is to the North, Mississippi is to the West, and Florida is to the South and East.  It will be interesting to see when we get to Florida how they managed to get that big hunk of land on the Gulf of Mexico that looks like it should be a part of Alabama.  The whole business of the borders between states must have been quite a political struggle!

There are some fine looking resorts on Alabama's Gulf of Mexico's shore.
