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 states capital is Montgomery while the largest city is Birmingham.
Alabama became the twenty-second state admitted to the Union, which it was on December 14, 1819. The state seceded from the Union in 1861 to become part of the Confederate States of America. It was readmitted to the Union in 1868.
Alabama in The Guns of the SouthEdit
Alabama in Southern VictoryEdit
After the C.S. lost the Great War, Alabama became a firmly Freedom Party state, although its faith wavered when the President Wade Hampton V was assassinated by a Freedomite in Birmingham in June 1922. Thanks to the efforts of Party leaders such as Jefferson Pinkard, in 1933 a group of Freedom Party Stalwarts actually attacked a rally for Whig candidate Samuel Longstreet, with the tacit approval of law enforcement. It also became a center of an ongoing Negro rebellion in the period immediately following Jake Featherston's inauguration as President in 1934.
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.
