Alabama is a state located in the Southern United States. It is bordered by Tennessee to the north, Georgia to the east, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and Mississippi to the west. The twenty-second state admitted to the Union, Alabama seceded from the union in 1861 to become part of the Confederate States of America.
After Georgia fell to United States General Irving Morrell, his advance turned to Alabama. Huntsville fell in mid 1944. C.S. General George Patton had hoped to make Birmingham his last stand, but after continual aerial bombing by the U.S and the threatened use of a Superbomb, he realized the futility of his action, and surrendered.
