  • More About This Book
Located almost dead center along the Gulf Coast, Mobile has seen a thing or two in its long history. The Port City has survived the ravages of hurricanes and yellow fever epidemics. It has been handed down from one nation to another not once but several times. The last major battle of the Civil War roared only miles away across its namesake bay, a few short years after the last slave ship, the Clotilda, arrived with its human contraband. But this city has had much to celebrate as well. Mobile gave our nation its greatest party in Mardi Gras. It was also the birthplace of five Major League Baseball Hall of Famers. Author Joe Cuhaj serves as docent to the twists and turns of Mobile and the Alabama Gulf’s fascinating past.

Former radio broadcaster turned software programmer turned author Joe Cuhaj moved to the Alabama Gulf Coast more than forty years ago and immediately fell in love with the area’s rich history. In 2004, along with coauthor Tamra Carraway, Cuhaj wrote his first book on Mobile history, Baseball in Mobile (Arcadia Publishing). His second book, Hidden History of Mobile (The History Press, 2020), brings some of the unknown and forgotten stories of the Port City’s past to life. In addition to his Mobile history books, Cuhaj is also the author of nine outdoor recreational guides to the state on hiking, paddling and camping for Falcon Books. You can learn more about Joe’s books, download his podcasts and read his short stories on his website (joe-cuhaj.com).
