Last week someone asked me about the name Wedowee. So I searched a while and discovered that Wedowee, means “old water” in the Creek language. It was the name of a Muscogee Creek Indian chief whose town was located adjacent to the small stream.
In the early1830’s, as a result of the passage of the Indian Removal Act, Andrew Jackson came into the Deep South and used military force to remove the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Muscogee Creek, and Seminole, people to the “Indian Lands” located further west. This became known as the “Trail of Tears”.
I realize that is probably the oddest series that you ever seen of a lake trip. Where’s the lake.
Well I thought that I would include one. Saturday night was the night before the super moon which was the year’s closest full moon. I took this from the pier.
