Frequently asked questions

About Alabama

Alabama has been home to many civilizations. Initially, Alabama was the home of many native tribes, but then it became a Spanish territory. Later, French landlords acquired it and then lost it to the British, and finally, Alabama became a State in 1819.

Before the Civil War, Alabama was a major cotton producer in the United States. However, when the Civil Rights Movement arose, most of the state’s rural population migrated to the cities, searching for a better quality of life.

Industrial development brought prosperity to Alabama, such that now, only 1% of the state’s GDP represents the agriculture sector.
