—Jamestown Settlement —


Although the French settled Alabama, they ceded it to England after the French and Indian War. In 1783, England ceded the northern part to the United States and the southern part to Spain, but by 1795 most of the area was claimed by the United States, which annexed the remainder in 1813. A separate Alabama Territory was organized in 1817. Two years later, a constitution was drafted and Alabama became a state.
