Welcome, my name is Phillip, and I’d like to thank you for visiting my gallery. I live in Birmingham, Alabama, which is located in the southeast region of the United States.
Several years ago I rediscovered my long lost passion, and entered the much cleaner digital world of photography. I enjoy photographing nature, landscapes, and historical subjects.

Gorgeous capture Phillip!! I especially like the lighting and angle!! I am intrigued as to how it got it’s name.
I’m not sure about the history of the Fort Deposit United Methodist Church. It is a beautiful old church. I was recently in the town on business, and had to take my camera along. However, below is some of the history of Fort Deposit.
Fort Deposit was established by General Ferdinand J. Claiborne in 1813 under orders from General Andrew Jackson. Its purpose was a supply depot during America’s Creek Indian War, but it was also used by the settlers in the area as protection against Indians and also served as a base of operation during Claiborne’s engagement at the Battle of the Holy Ground. The area was known as Fort Deposit six years before Alabama became a state, although the town wasn’t incorporate until 1891.
I was told that part of the old fort still remains, and read where it had been excavated. I understand that there is a desire to make some type of park marking its location, but if it is anything there I couldn’t find it. I even asked a group of locals and they didn’t know what I was talking about.

I’m not really sure about the history of the the old church. It is a beautiful old church. I just happened to be in the area on business and had to take my camera along. However, you can find some of the history of Fort Deposit in the comments . Have a great weekend.
