Amicalola Falls, I’m pretty sure I’ve seen you before when I was younger. I’ve blocked those days from my mind so I can’t be too sure. Here are some facts to shove into your face for a brief moment:
- Amicalola Falls is the tallest cascading waterfall in the south. Or some places say, east of the Mississippi (which I think should be said in the strongest and proudest southern accent)
- It is FOUR TIMES larger than the Niagra Falls.
- The Cherokee Indians called these parts home until we decided to forcibly remove them. ‘Merica!…..I say that with sarcasm.
- No one could spell the name of the falls:
Um-ma-eolola – William Williamson’s interpretation of the Cherokee word.
Amakalola – Common settler misspelling.
Armicalola – Common settler misspelling
Ummahcaloloke – settler misspelling
Ammacalola – Original name of Methodist Camp Ground
Amicalololololola – Tracy’s Spelling
