In 1783, it was shared between Spain and the United States, that finally have conquered the Spanish part in 1813.

War against the Creek

The war against Creek (1813-1814), which attempted to oppose White domination, ended with the victory of General Andrew Jackson in 1814, during the battle of Horseshoe Bend; the Indians then emigrated to Oklahoma.

Alabama joined the Union on December 14, 1819, as the twenty-second American state. Cotton plantations developed rapidly. In January 1861, Alabama made a secession, then was occupied, after the taking of Movable in 1864, by the amiral unionist forces David Farragut. Although Alabama adopted a new Constitution that abolished slavery in December 1865, attempts at integration of minorities and desegregation have long been shocked by important reservations on the part of the local population. The north of the state also experienced an important industrial development during the so-called Reconstruction period that followed the Secession war.

White domination was consolidated by the new 1901 Constitution whose aim was to prevent Blacks from voting. In 1955, Martin Luther King, from Baptist pastor at Montgomery, caused boycottage (for 381 days) of municipal buses by the black population. This action triggered the civil rights movement (1950-1960 years), culminating when Martin Luther King stepped up from Selma to Montgomery (1965), with the enactment of a federal law. The state again experienced sustained economic growth during the 1960s and 1980s, despite the early 1990s, Alabama still had a per capita income and a level of education below the national average.
