State of the Month - Alabama

As a new monthly feature I am going to go through the States of the United States in alphabetical order to check out how they got named, what their flag is like and other things of interest.  It would be great if you shared other info/comments about the state with us via a comment.

Name – believed to be derived from the Choctaw language, great disagreement about the meaning.

Nickname – the Yellowhammer state (after the state bird)


Location in the US

Some of the most popular foods are fried chicken, biscuits, green beans, crab cakes and banana pudding.

Flower – Camellia

Famous people born in Alabama – Nat King Cole, Emmylou Harris, Helen Keller, Harper Lee, Hank Williams and Tammy Wynette


  1. This will be of interest particularly to overseas visitors. Could you put in the food the area is famous for and a mini map highlighting the location of the State

  2. Completely on the trivia side of things, Chart topping song... "Sweet Home Alabama".


Your comments are most welcome. Cheers
