5 ALABAMA HISTORY On December 14, 1819, Alabama became a state of the United States of America. Alabama joined the union as the 22 nd state and became known as the “Heart of Dixie.” After the American Revolution, the Confederacy was founded at Montgomery in February 1861, and for a time, the city was the Confederate capital. Cotton and slave laborers were a big part of Alabama’s economy during the first half of the 19 th century. In 1793, Eli Whitney invented the cotton gin. Cotton production began to soar in the south and settlers began to pour into the fertile lands of Alabama. After the Civil War, cotton remained Alabama’s chief crop until 1915, when the boll weevil destroyed cotton crops across the state. After the Civil War, the blacks and whites segregated. Booker T. Washington, who was born into slavery, became the first leader of the Tuskegee Institute training blacks with occupational skills. In December 1955, the Montgomery Bus Boycott occurred when the African Americans refused to ride public buses. After the boycott, tension continued between the blacks and whites. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 outlawed segregation in schools, public places and employment. Slide 2

6 Creek Indians The Creek Indians also are known as the Muscogee or Muskogee Indians. They are Native American people who are traditionally from the Southeastern United States. They were the first Native Americans to be “civilized” under George Washington’s civilization plan. It is believed that the Creek culture began as a way to guard against other larger conquering Indian tribes of the region. From the 1500’s to the 1600’s the Creeks dominated all of the South-East United State until the Cherokee would force them westward to Alabama and to what is now known as Oklahoma. The Creek Indians raise cows, horses and pigs as livestock. Unlike many Southeastern Indian tribes, the Poarch Creeks were not taken from their tribal lands, and have lived together for over 150 years. The ancestors of the Poarch Creek Indians lived along the Alabama River. The Muscogee were not one tribe but a union of several. They were descendants of the Mississippian culture peoples, who built earthwork mounds at their regional chiefdoms located throughout the Mississippi River Valley. The most important leader in Muscogee society was the village chef. The village chief lead warriors in battle and represented their villages. Slide 3

23 College Football Sunday Rewind: The post-BCS Championship Game is settled edition College Football Sunday Rewind: The post-BCS Championship Game is settled edition November 27, 2011, 6:21PM BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- Welcome to Championship Week in college football, which gives us no games that matter to the national title picture. Oh, there may be some compelling games. (OK, don't bother watching the Pac-12 Championship Game for competitive purposes.) But the sport that says every game counts -- arguably the biggest PR shams in sports -- already has its championship game set, no matter how much debate you'll hear this week to build interest. It will be LSU vs. Alabama unless an incredible number of voters change their mind. This isn't like 2006, when voters decided against a rematch. That happened after Michigan lost and then USC lost. Alabama's season is done and it's at No. 2. Voters would have to consciously move down a clear No. 2 right now. Won't happen. Slide 20
