Alabama is a state with a turbulent history, marked by disputes between European colonists and Native Americans, and eventually African Americans, which lasted until the 1960s.

The first European reconnaissance expedition was undertaken by the Spaniards under the leadership of Hernando de Soto (1500-1542), who came here to look for precious metals. Although the expedition did not find any, it opened the area to European settlers, which killed thousands of Indians. For the next three centuries, France, Spain and Britain sought this area. In 1702, the French expedition to the Mississippi established the first permanent settlement on Dauphin Island at the mouth of the Alabama River. Seventeen years later, the first ship with African slaves landed in Port Dauphin.

In 1763, Britain gained control of most of the territory and Spanish positions on the coast were greatly weakened. In 1817, the territory of Alabama was established, which two years later gained the status of a state. Meanwhile, the rest of the Native American population was evicted to Oklahoma to make room for another wave of European immigrants.

Alabama became a state dependent on cotton production, and therefore slave labor. Until 1860, black slaves made up half of the state’s population, and therefore its withdrawal from the Union and accession to the Confederacy was virtually inevitable. The state suffered heavy losses during the Civil War and was under military rule in 1867-68. The period of reconstruction of the South (1868–1874) only widened the gap between whites and blacks and led to the support of the racist organization Ku-Klux-Klan. Here, as in other southern states, the process of discriminating against black voters meant that blacks did not acquire full civil rights until the 1960s. Alabama was the site of many black protests in the 1950s and 1960s, including the Montgomer March in 1965, led by Martin Luther King (1929-1968).

Agriculture, which mainly produces cotton and peanuts, is no longer so important. Based on its own hard coal and iron ore, the production of iron, steel, aluminum and agricultural machinery, textiles, building materials and high-end electronics has developed.
