News from Alabama ;

Clotilda ; last know slave ship to bring slaves to the USA  found in Alabama.
After its last voyage it was burned and sank in a river.

BUT ::: Clotilda  is a name that old people had ( somebody's gran ) , when  I was growing up  .
Lo. you will most likely find a odd Clotilda , around ....still.

Nice name.

Re: CLOTILDA ........ last slave ship

I mentioned  the finding of   CLOTILDA last night  and it seem to have put a defining moment in  US history , black history  .


The schooner Clotilida was the last known US slave ship to bring captives from Africa to the United stated , arriving at Mobile bay in Autumn 1859 or July 1860 , with 110 - 160  slaves.
The ship was a two masted schooner , 86 feet long  with a beam of 23 feet.

Length ... 26m
Sail plan ... schooner
Fate... scuttled.


Now , we shall see if New Historian  will be able to use his knowledge of the sea to tell us  a little of what Clotilda would have sailed like. ? l words like scuttled and sail plan.
We shall see. lo.
