PostSubject: Montgomery, Alabama   Wed Dec 01, 2010 9:00 am

Montgomery (pronounced /mɒntˈɡʌməri/) is the capital, second most populous city,[1] and the fourth most populous metropolitan area in the Southern U.S. state of Alabama, and is the county seat of Montgomery County.[2] It is located southeast of the center of the state, in the Gulf Coastal Plain. The city population was 201,568 as of the 2000 census.[3] Montgomery is the primary city of the Montgomery Metropolitan Statistical Area, which had a 2000 population of 346,528, making it the fourth largest in the state.[4] As of 2009 the estimated population of Montgomery is 202,124.[5]

The city was incorporated in 1819, as a merger of two towns situated along the Alabama River. It became the state capital in 1846. In February 1861, Montgomery was selected as the first capital of the Confederate States of America, until the seat of government moved to Richmond, Virginia in May of that year.[6] During the mid-20th century, Montgomery was a primary site in the African-American Civil Rights Movement, including the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the Selma to Montgomery marches.
