Slavery in Alabama, Sellers, James Benson
46 Sellers, James Benson Slavery in Alabama
University, Alabama University of Alabama Press 1964 Second Edition; First Impression Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Second Edition, looks almost new with dust. Dust is in mylar cover. Following the patenting of the cotton gin (in 1793), the War of 1812 and the defeat and expulsion of the Creek Nation, European-American settlement in Alabama was intensified, as was the presence of slavery on newly established plantations in the territory. Like its neighbors, the Alabama Territory was fertile ground for the surging cotton crop, and soon became one of the major destinations for African-American slaves who were being shipped to the extreme Southeastern United States.Most of the settlers came from the nearby states of North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, attracted by the prospect of fertile planting of cotton in the Tennessee Valley and Black Belt. The plantation system was solidified throughout the first half of the 19th century, and Alabama was one of the first seven states to withdraw from the Union prior to the American Civil War. However, by the eve of the Civil War, only a minute portion of the population continued to own slaves, as the state had experienced a slave-labor decline.

51 Unknown The Promise of Alabama Wallace Administration, What It Has Done - Where It is Going
Montgomery, AL State of Alabama 1960 First Edition; First Impression Paperback Very Good with No dust jacket as issued 
White and blue cover with photo of Gov. George C. Wallace. Official Alabama Directory Attractions for Tourists. Numerous photos and stories of Alabama locations. George Corley Wallace, Jr. (August 25, 1919 September 13, 1998) was an American politician and the 45th Governor of Alabama, having served two nonconsecutive terms and two consecutive terms as a Democrat: 19631967, 19711979 and 19831987. Wallace has the third longest gubernatorial tenure in post-Constitutional U.S. history at 5,848 days. After four runs for U.S. President (three as a Democrat and one on the American Independent Party ticket), he earned the title "the most influential loser" in 20th century U.S. politics, according to biographers Dan T. Carter and Stephan Lesher.A 1972 assassination attempt left Wallace paralyzed, and he used a wheelchair for the remainder of his life. He is remembered for his Southern populist and segregationist attitudes during the mid-20th century period of the African-American civil rights movement and activism, which gained passage of federal civil rights legislation in the mid-1960s to enforce constitutional rights for all citizens. He eventually renounced segregationism but remained a populist.(Wikipedia); Photographs, Maps, Illustrations; 296 pages
