Alabama Unforgettable
* Capital City: Montgomery
       Known as the Heart of Dixie, Alabama became the 22nd state in 1819. The name Alabama is derived from an Indian word meaning "thicket cllearers". Alabama has been at the center of many American battles - between white settlers and Native Americans, and between the North and South in the Civil War. The state also is home to the first of three Spase Camps in the United States. These camps let kids experience what it would be like to be in outer spase. The capital is Montgomery, and state flower is the camellia.
* Origin of state's name: Means ''tribal town'' in the Creek Indian language.
