The story go, during Hernando De Sota's sojourn into this area, the resident native Americans came in contact with the explorers. Many contracted diseases which produced high fever. To these people, the cool, free-flowing river water was the 'cure' for fever. By the time DeSota left the area, the river was reported to be 'full of the dead' from the Choctaw and Chickasaw Nations and so it came to be called Tombigbee River. This grim story is soon forgotten by today's visitors to the Tombigbee National Forest.
