USA ~ Alabama ~

... Great postcard with map, flag, seal and all the states facts...  Alabama is the only U.S. state without an official nickname... but alternately referred to as the “Heart of Dixie” or the “cotton state”...these nicknames remain popular, along with the "Yellowhammer State", as a modern-day tribute to Alabama history... Thanks Kristin!!【ツ】

Alabama is a state in the southeastern region of the US. It is bordered by Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, the Gulf of Mexico and the Mississippi.

Alabama was the twenty-second state to be admitted to the union.

The state was indirectly named after a southern Native American tribe that took up residence in central Alabama in the 1500s. Historical accounts have referred to the group as the Alibamo, Alibamu, and Alabamon, among others, but it was the spelling of a river named in their honor that stuck.

Montgomery is the state capital and one of the largest city in Alabama which is known as “bombingham” thanks to its civil rights violence in the past.
