Alabama:  From Territory to State

Mike Bunn, a member of the Alabama Humanities Foundation’s Bicentennial Scholars, will present on early Alabama history on Tuesday, January 15, at 2:00 p.m., at the City of Foley Public Library.

Mike Bunn will be presenting “Alabama: From Territory to State” in conjunction with the Sweet Home: Alabama’s History in Maps exhibit which will be on display at our library starting in early January into February 2019.

Mike has spoken to dozens of groups, ranging from civic groups and historical societies to a variety of continuing education programs, across the state and beyond on a variety of historical topics. His Bicentennial-focused presentation, “Alabama: From Territory to State” is a fast-moving and richly illustrated presentation which introduces audiences to Alabama’s tumultuous founding era.

Mike Bunn is a public historian who has spent the entirety of his career researching, writing, and speaking about the Deep South’s history and culture. He is author of several books on Alabama, Georgia, and Mississippi history, and a frequent contributor to publications such as Alabama Heritage magazine.

Mike is currently Director of Operations at Historic Blakeley State Park in Spanish Fort, Alabama, a 2,000-acre site within the scenic Mobile-Tensaw Delta preserving the sites of the territorial-era town of Blakeley, the Civil War Battle of Fort Blakeley, and colonial era and Native American occupations.
