Alabama is one of our nation's most beautiful states, with terrain that begins in the mountains of the northeast corner of the state and ends on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. In between is a region that is one of the most historic in the United States. From early French and Spanish settlements to powerful prehistoric Native American chiefdoms and from battlefields of the American Revolution to battlefields and forts of the War Between the States, Alabama boasts a vast array of historic sites and points of interest. National parks commemorate the Creek War of 1813-1814 and the Selma to Montgomery March during the Civil Rights Era, as well as the contributions of Dr. George Washington Carver and the Tuskegee Airmen.
