Frederic was a long-lived Cape Verde-type hurricane. It first became a hurricane in the central Atlantic east of the Windward Islands but soon weakened back into a tropical storm. Frederic crossed Hispaniola and weakened into a tropical depression. Frederic then crossed Cuba and regained tropical storm strength before entering the Gulf of Mexico. It was then that Frederic started to strengthen rapidly. By the time it reached a point just east of the Mississippi River Delta, Frederic was a Category 4. It made landfall near the Alabama Mississippi border, just to the west of Mobile (Mobile, Alabama), Alabama. Due to prior warning, the death toll was a minimal five people; however, damages soared to $2.3 billion (1979 dollars) in damage. * Ex-Airline in US taken over * 1981-1982 - small commuter airline based in Mobile (Mobile, Alabama), Alabama * 1986-1987 - small commuter airline based in Homestead (Homestead, Florida), Florida The network also showed a college all-star game after the season.

In 1990 and 1991 Pat Winter published the two-volume ''Madoc Saga''. Journalist James Alexander Thom also researched Madoc's voyage for his 1995 novel ''The Children of First Man''. The fantasy work ''Excalibur (Excalibur (novel))'', by American novelist Sanders Anne Laubenthal, is set in Mobile (Mobile, Alabama) and is based on the presumption that Madoc brought King Arthur's sword Excalibur to the New World.

News frequently criticized the new regime about malfeasance. History From the beginning of the 17th century, Spanish and French explorers, recognizing the potential riches in the vast New World across the sea, began colonizing the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico. The Spaniards had settled on Panzacola Bay. Some sources translate Panzacola as meaning "the village of hairy people, referring to the Spanish. The French were located above Maubila (Mobile (Mobile, Alabama)). A natural boundary was needed for their unsettled relationship so that the groups from the two thriving seaports could live in this region in relative peace and harmony. Explorers from both countries had heard of a great mysterious body of water to the west of Pensacola (Pensacola, Florida), but they were unable to find the entrance. The '''Mobile Mysticks''' were a professional minor league ice hockey team based in Mobile (Mobile, Alabama), Alabama that played in the ECHL. They played their home games at the Mobile Civic Center. The team was founded in 1995 as an expansion franchise, joining the ECHL alongside the Louisville River Frogs and the Louisiana IceGators. The Mysticks owed their name to the prevalence of mystic societies (Mystic society)—social organizations responsible for throwing parades and balls during the Carnival season—that existed in Mobile since the early 1700s. '''Tommie Lee Aaron''' (August 5, 1939 – August 16, 1984) was a first baseman and left fielder in Major League Baseball, and a younger brother of Hall of Famer (National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum) Hank Aaron. They were the first siblings to appear together in a League Championship Series (1969 National League Championship Series) as teammates. Born in Mobile, Alabama, he was signed by the Milwaukee Braves on May 28, 1958, at the age of 18. He played for both the Milwaukee Braves (1962–1963, 1965) and the Atlanta Braves (1968–1971). In 1858, Mississippi passed legislation that gave jurisdiction over the island to the United States government. After the war, Congress (United States Congress) approved an ambitious plan to construct state-of-the-art masonry fortifications at strategic locations along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, including Ship Island. Construction of Fort Massachusetts (Fort Massachusetts (Mississippi)) began in 1859, but was halted due to the Civil War (American Civil War), when the island also became a prison for Confederate prisoners of war, and a base for the U.S. Second Regiment (Louisiana Native Guards (1st Louisiana Native Guard) led by Colonel Nathan W. Daniels), one of the first African-American combat units to fight in the Civil War. On July 9, 1861, a twenty-minute cannon exchange between Confederates on the island and the ''USS Massachusetts'' occurred. Ship Island was abandoned by the Confederates (Confederate States of America) because it could not be adequately garrisoned. The ''USS Massachusetts'' proceeded to Ship Island in September 1861. According to the historian John D. Winters, the island was "a valuable base from which to break up the traffic of the small Confederate vessels plying between Mobile (Mobile, Alabama) and New Orleans (New Orleans, Louisiana) through Mississippi Sound."

As Shelby Foote noted, the Confederates also gained a strategic victory in the Red River Campaign. They were able to delay the return of Brigadier General Andrew Smith’s 10,000–man force to Major General Sherman's army for use in the Atlanta Campaign. Also, about 20,000 Confederate soldiers from Alabama were able to reinforce General (General (CSA)) Joe Johnston (Joseph E. Johnston) in his defense against Sherman. These forces otherwise might have been engaged in Alabama had Banks attacked Mobile, Alabama, as Lieutenant General Grant would have preferred, rather than attempt to take Shreveport under Halleck’s plan. Shelby Foote stated, in fairness to Banks, even Banks would have preferred to move against Mobile rather than against Shreveport. The Union Army tied up significant forces in the Red River Campaign and lost significant numbers of artillery pieces, wagons, mules and supplies that could have been used in the more decisive campaigns further east. Yet, Kirby Smith could not get his forces back to Alexandria in time for a further attempt to capture or destroy Banks's force. The disruption and retreat of Union forces in Arkansas also cleared the way for Price's 1864 invasion of Missouri (Price's Raid). Ultimately that campaign provided no long term benefit to the Confederates, who were driven out of Missouri again after the Battle of Westport and the consequent offensive by Union cavalry under Major General Alfred Pleasonton, which defeated the Confederates in 4 battles in 5 days following the battle of Westport.

Starting in 1865, near the war's end, Ryan moved from parish (Parish (Catholic Church)) to parish throughout the South (Southern United States), moving from a brief posting in Clarksville (Clarksville, Tennessee), Tennessee (November 1864-March 1865), with subsequent stays in Knoxville (Knoxville, Tennessee) (April 1865-December 1867), Augusta (Augusta, Georgia) Georgia (Georgia (U.S. state)) (January 1868-April 1870), and a lengthier tenure in Mobile (Mobile, Alabama), Alabama (Alabama (U.S. state)) (June 1870-October 1880). He then spent a year in semi-retirement at Biloxi (Biloxi, Mississippi), Mississippi (November 1881-October 1882) while completing his second book, ''A Crown for Our Queen.'' However, the largest population center of Mobile, Alabama, often makes the argument that South Alabama refers only to the extreme southernmost parts of Alabama. This is reflected in the name of the University of South Alabama, located in Mobile. In July 1978, ''Butte'' 's homeport was temporarily shifted to Brooklyn, New York where she underwent a major overhaul. In June 1979, her homeport then became Naval Weapons Station Earle, New Jersey (Naval Weapons Station Earle). BUTTE was awarded the Navy Expeditionary Medal for a 1981 Indian Ocean deployment which also took her to the Mediterranean. A 1983 deployment took BUTTE to the shores of Beirut, Lebanon where she was awarded a second Navy Expeditionary Medal for her support of U.S. Embassies overseas, including those in Beirut, Lebanon and Tunis, Tunisia. During a 1984-85 Mediterranean deployment, she was rated as best ship in Service Squadron Two and, in May 1985, was awarded the Battle Efficiency "E" in Engineering, Damage Control, Command Control and Communications, Navigation Deck Seamanship and Fleet Support. "Butte'' underwent another major overhaul in Mobile, Alabama from August 1985 to May 1986. ''Butte'' was a big part of Operation Goldenrod during a 1987 Mediterranean deployment when she helped with the arrest of two Lebanese terrorists in international waters off the coast of Lebanon. Universal Communications was acquired by the Gannett Company as part of Gannett's purchase of the Evening News Association in 1986. Gannett had owned the ''Tucson Citizen'' since 1977, and FCC regulations of the time forced Gannett to sell KOLD along with KTVY (now KFOR-TV) in Oklahoma City and WALA-TV in Mobile, Alabama to Knight Ridder Broadcasting after just one day of ownership. The News-Press & Gazette Company acquired KOLD in 1989, when Knight Ridder bowed out of broadcasting. Brianna Stewart emerges left thumb alt Brianna and Kenny Dunn.

She had a boyfriend for a year and a half, Kenny Dunn and told him about her alleged abuse. First she claimed that she originated from Mobile, Alabama. Sympathetic benefactors gave her money and shelter but she eventually betrayed their trust by making false claims of abuse.

In 1863 Seay enlisted in the Confederate Army and served with his company around Mobile (Mobile, Alabama). He was captured at Spanish Fort (Spanish Fort, Alabama) and at Blakeley and was imprisoned on Ship Island. Seay returned to Southern University (Greensboro) after the war, graduating in 1867. He then studied law and practiced as a junior member of Coleman and Seay from 1869 to 1885. Seay also engaged in planting. In New Orleans, he used his business profits to buy and endow a cemetery, and to build a synagogue, an almshouse and an infirmary for sailors suffering from yellow fever, as well as a Unitarian (Unitarianism) church for a minister named Mr.Theodore Clapp whom he greatly admired. The infirmary became the largest free hospital in Louisiana, the Touro Infirmary. http: www.touro.com content He was a major contributor to many Christian charities in New Orleans, as well as to such varied causes as the American Revolutionary War monument at Bunker Hill (Battle of Bunker Hill), and the relief of victims of a large fire in Mobile, Alabama. In a New Orleans fund-raising drive for Christians suffering persecution in Jerusalem, he gave ten times more than any other donor. Fleming, p. 30. One profile of Touro particularly praised his willingness to give both to Jewish and non-Jewish religious causes: "An admirable trait evinced, was the unsectarian distribution of charity, while the donor ever continued a strict adherent to the principles of his faith." Morais, p. 337. His $20,000 donation to The Jews' Hospital in New York City (now Mount Sinai Hospital (Mount Sinai Hospital, New York)) led to its opening in 1855. Niss, Barbara.

'''Mobile''' ( making it the third most populous city in the State (U.S. state) of Alabama, the most populous in Mobile County, and the largest municipality on the Gulf Coast (Gulf Coast of the United States) between New Orleans, Louisiana (New Orleans), and St. Petersburg, Florida.
Alabama's only saltwater port, Mobile is located at the head of the Mobile Bay and the north-central Gulf Coast.
Mobile began as the first capital of colonial French Louisiana (Louisiana (New France)) in 1702. During its first 100 years, Mobile was a colony of France (Early Modern France), then Britain (Kingdom of Great Britain), and lastly Spain. Mobile first became a part of the United States of America in 1813, with the annexation of West Florida under President James Madison. In 1861 Alabama joined the Confederate States of America, which surrendered in 1865.
As one of the Gulf Coast (Gulf Coast of the United States)'s cultural centers, Mobile has several art museums, a symphony orchestra, a professional opera, a professional ballet company, and a large concentration of historic architecture.
