Alabama Land

The Yellowhammer state encompasses 32.6 million acres, equalling over 50,938 square miles. Located in the southern region of the United States, part of its borders are formed by the Gulf of Mexico. The western border is the state of Mississippi. Neighboring states include Mississippi, Georgia, Tennessee, and Florida.

Alabama’s name derives from a Native American word meaning “vegetation gatherers,” referencing the Indians clearing the land and making it fit for farming. Alabama became the 22nd state of the Union in 1819.

It’s nicknamed the Yellowhammer State in honor of a company of young cavalrymen from Huntsville who wore uniforms adorned with fine yellow cloth. The name spread until all Confederate troops from Alabama were referred to as “yellowhammers.”

The state flower is the camellia, a flowering shrub, and the state bird is the Yellowhammer.

The state is made up of 67 counties. Montgomery is the capital, and the Huntsville metro is now the largest city. Birmingham, in the north-central region, is the second largest.
