Rivers bisect the state of Alabama emptying into the Gulf of Mexico.
The rivers sustain the farms and now manufacturing developments that dot the landscape.
Alabama, most known for its role in Civil War and Civil Rights Movement, is also home to one of the earliest port cities, Mobile, founded in 1702 by French immigrants. Here you can learn about the lives of Gulf Coast fishermen or cycle the route used in the Underground Railroad.
