Halfway through Africa

Barley Hugg, Location Historian

About halfway through her flight in Africa, Amelia Earhart stopped in the town of D’Jamena.  D’Jamena is the capital of Chad.  It is a port town, but on the river and not the ocean.  In the late 1930’s the population was under 10,000 people.  Today the population stands at over a half million people.  War comes to D’Jamena pretty often.  Most recently it was invaded by rebels on February 2, 2008.
