Alabama & Tennessee River Railroad

Alabama & Tennessee River Railroad and its proposed extentions, drawn and engraved by G.W. & C.B. Colton & Co.

Alabama's oldest city is Mobile, which was founded in 1702 by French colonists. Alabama became a state in 1819. The early economy there centered around shipbuilding in the navigable port regions and agriculture in its inner regions. Cotton was grown abundantly throughout Alabama’s fertile lands.

This map, first published and printed in 1865, indicates Alabama's stock and grain district, its agricultural and manufacturing belt, and its mineral, cotton, and timber regions in the years of reconstruction at the end of the American Civil War.

Included are portions of Mississippi, Louisiana, Georgia and Florida.
