Alabama State Coordinator needed

The Alabama Territory was created by the United States Congress on March 3, 1817 and on December 14, 1819, Alabama was granted statehood.

 

History

"The history of Alabama begins with the invasion of the country by the Spaniards under DeSoto in 1540 which was forty three years subsequent to the discovery of the northern continent of America by John Cabot. Prior to the visit of DeSoto nothing is known of this region. It had in all probability been the home of the Indians or other savage and inferior race from the remotest period."
