The region of Alabama was initially dominated by the French until 1763, when it passed to English control. Later, in 1783, the territory was annexed by the Americans, who raised Alabama to the status of State in 1819. In 1861, it became part of the Confederate States of America, having fought during the American Civil War against the other States of the Union. After the defeat of the Confederates, Alabama was readmitted to the Union in June 1868.
