Black Warrior River

The river's name was taken from the Native American Chief Taskalusa (meaning black warrior) who encountered the De Soto expedition in 1540. This video recalls the history of the Black Warrior River from the time of early human settlement to the present. Special focus is given to the river's changing status since the construction of a series of dams and locks completed earlier this century.
