      Frontier Days

      Using Fort Toulouse / Jackson Park as its historical backdrop, Alabama Frontier Days focus on demonstrating what life was like in the frontier South during the early years of European and American exploration and settlement, 1700-1820. The public can experience this living history as many frontier trades and crafts will be demonstrated by living history specialists and craftsmen in costumes of the period. From 1700-1763, the Alabama River Valley was part of French Colonial Louisiana. It was also claimed by the English, and both of these powers competed for the allegiance of the Indians. The English eventually won the struggle for control of eastern North America, and as a result we now speak English as our primary language. From 1763 until 1790, the English, Spanish and Native Americans controlled the frontier South. But with the War of 1812 and the Creek War of 1813-1814, the British and the Indians challenged our young country for control. The end of the War of 1812, and the Treaty of Fort Jackson in August of 1814, opened up 20 million acres of native lands to American settlers and Alabama was born. Admission charged.
