Many held here would never leave the dirty, filthy prison alive.Their final resting places continue to this day to be a mystery; no one knows for sure just where they are buried.There, before my eyes, was an attractive visitors’ center. In the late 1800s, it had been removed from its location here by the river and transported to Selma.Within the past two years, the historical commission had been successful in getting the house returned back to its original setting.The area I was about to tour had been our state’s capital from 1820 to 1826. During the later days of the Civil War, the old town of Cahaba was to become a filthy and lice-infested prison for over 3,000 captured Union soldiers.These prisoners were held in a small, cramped area not much larger than a small four-room house.If I remembered correctly, Claiborne had a much larger population than the capital of Cahaba. Upon entering the visitors’ center, I was met by a very knowledgeable guide of the area.I was given pamphlets about that which I was about to see on the upcoming tour. As I quickly glanced over some of the names and places of those listed there, I saw names from such places as Germany, Spain and several cities within the United States – places from which these tourists had to travel a considerable distance to get here.

Tuesday, the 28th of September, I ventured forth and visited the old town of Cahaba.I had received through the mail a pamphlet telling about Archeaology Week at Cahaba and the guided tours of the old capital.
