History of Alabama

Alabama suffered greatly from the Civil War. Although there were no major battles in the state, virtually every white Alabama male capable of bearing arms participated in the hostilities.

After the victory of the northerners, Alabama continued to be an agricultural state. There was very serious opposition in the state to the 1865 emancipation of the slaves. The positions of the Ku Klux Klan and other racist organizations were very strong in the state. Racial segregation continued in Alabama for another century after the emancipation of the slaves.

In the early 20th century, due to continued racial discrimination and economic depression exacerbated by the cotton weevil epidemic, thousands of black Alabama residents moved to industrial cities in the Northeast and Midwest of the United States. At the same time, many rural Alabama residents were moving to the state’s cities, primarily Birmingham, in search of work. Industry began to develop in Alabama, including mining and engineering. A powerful impetus to the state’s economy was given by World War II, after which Alabama was no longer an agricultural, but a powerful industrial state.

In the fifties and sixties of the XX century in Alabama, as in other US states, the movement for the civil rights of black Americans was gaining momentum, which led to the abolition of discriminatory laws. One of the most famous episodes of this struggle was “Bloody Sunday” on March 7, 1965, when the police used tear gas to disperse the protesters, brutally beating many demonstrators in the process.
