Russell Cave National Monument

Russel Cave National Monument is located on the border with Tennessee in northeast Alabama. Nearby is the small town of Bridgeport, which has about 3,000 inhabitants. The monument was declared on May 11, 1961 and covers an area of 1.3 square kilometers. These lands were donated to the American people by the National Geographic Society. Today, the monument is managed by the National Park Service. Russel Cave was entered in the National Register of Historic Places on October 15, 1966.

The total length of the cave, which has been mapped so far, is 11.6 km. Russell Cave is thus the third longest mapped cave in Alabama. It thus ranked 90th in the list of the longest caves in the United States of America, and ranked 314th among the world’s caves.

The entrance to the cave is extremely large, so it was used in the past by prehistoric Indians as a shelter. These Indians are considered to be the oldest known settlement in the southeastern United States. They obtained both food and wood from the surrounding forest for tools and heating. After this tribe, painted figures depicting ancient inhabitants more than 8,000 years ago remained in the cave.

The rock in which the cave was formed about 300 million years ago at the bottom of the inland sea, which then covered the whole area. 9,000 to 12,000 years ago, the roof of the cave collapsed, creating an abyss and an uncovered Russell Cave. Today, in the vicinity of the cave entrances, there is a lush nature with almost forests.

Several rare and endemic species of animals have been discovered in the cave, including the Alabama scorpion, which does not live anywhere else in the world, so free movement of tourists is not allowed around the cave. There are two paths through the cave that visitors can follow. One of them is an educational paved 1.9 km long trail, the other option is approximately the same length, but unpaved trail leading through the local remote landscape. On both routes you have a great opportunity to observe forest nature and plants or the Montague Mountain.

Selma To Montgomery National Historic Trail

The Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail was established by the US Congress in 1996 to commemorate the events and people associated with the 1965 Alabama election. (NPS).

SEMO, as Selma to Mongomery is also sometimes abbreviated, is the shortest of all 23 historical trails covered by the National Trail System, which protects all landscapes, natural, cultural and historically interesting routes. The track is a total of 54 miles and passes through many historically significant areas. Along the way, there is a church in Selma or the interesting Edmond Pettus Bridge.

A violent demonstration took place on this bridge today, March 7, 1956, and its participants, defending their voting rights, blocked the bridge and prevented anyone from crossing it. The protesters were eventually beaten and dispersed, an incident called Bloody Sunday eventually hit the media and was broadcast around the world. Historically, Selma to Montgomery is considered one of the biggest election campaigns of ordinary people fighting for human rights. It was mainly about the equality of African Americans and Americans of America.
