Columbus, Georgia bans Native Americans from discos
The City of Columbus, GA still has a law on the books, which states that all Indians must be back across the Chattahoochee River in Alabama by nightfall.
Guess you Native folks at Auburn University, plus those in Lee and Russell Counties, Alabama, will have to forget about “doing the night clubs” on the water front in Columbus. That explains why a small portion of Fort Benning is in Alabama . . . barracks for Native American soldiers. And why Phenix City, Alabama was formerly one of the wildest places in the nation. Injun boys gotta have fun too!
