The New International Encyclopædia/Alabama (river)
ALABAMA. A river formed by the junction of the Coosa and Tallapoosa rivers, about 10 miles north of Montgomery, Ala. (Map: Alabama, B 4). Its general course is westward to Selma, thence south-westward to about 50 miles north of Mobile, where it meets the Tonibigbee, and with that stream forms the Mobile River. It is 320 miles long, and navigable from its mouth to Montgomery, nearly its entire length.
