History of Alabama
Historically, the state was inhabited by the Choctaws, Creeks, and other tribes from among the Five Civilized Tribes of Oklahoma. The Spaniard Hernando De Soto explored these lands in 1540, and the French, led by de Bienville, founded the first permanent European settlement in the area of the modern city of Mobile in 1702. France ceded the region to Great Britain in 1763, and she, in turn, was forced to transfer it to the United States in 1813, but Spain held Mobile until 1813. The defeat of the Creeks at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend led to an influx of white settlers who made plantation slavery the mainstay of the economy. Montgomery was the first capital of the Confederacy. The state suffered greatly during the Civil War and Reconstruction. The development of industry began towards the end of the 19th century, but monoculture (cotton) led to a widespread depression in agriculture, strengthened in 1915 by the invasion of cotton weevils. Changes in the economy in the 30s. led to the development of energy and ferrous metallurgy. In the 1950s and 1960s, despite serious racial problems, the state completely switched to the path of industrialization.
