More About Clarke County by Joyce White Burrage
 
 
 
Overview
Clarke County is a beautifully wooded and peaceful spot in west Alabama with a long and rich history.
Bounded on the east by the Alabama River and on the
west by the Tombigbee River, Clarke County's rich
timberlands serve as the source for pine timber markets throughout the world. The fantastic hunting and fishing in the county are known throughout the South. Clarke County's history includes the story of the Mitcham War, a period of unrest in 1893 that reached state-wide proportions in notoriety. The county's history is one largely comprised of the working men and women who have contributed to the cultural tapestry of the area. This visual journey begins around the time of the earliest woodcut of the courthouse in Grove Hill, built in 1832, and continues through the 1940s. Many of the images in this collection have never before been published. These fascinating glimpses into Clarke County's past are combined with a well-researched text to uncover many long-forgotten stories and a colorful cast of characters.
