Last known slave ship found in Alabama

Last known slave ship found in Alabama

The last ship known to smuggle slaves from Africa to the US has been discovered in Alabama’s Mobile River, nearly 160 years after it was deliberately sunk. The Clotilda operated in secret, decades after Congress banned the importation of slaves into the country in 1807. The ship is believed to have been intentionally sunk in 1860 to hide evidence of its use in the slave trade.
