ALABAMA
HER HISTORY, RESOURCES,
WAR RECORD, AND PUBLIC MEN.

FROM 1540 TO 1872.

BY W. BREWER.


"What constitutes a state?
	Not high raised battlements, or labored mound,
Thick wall, or moated gate;
	Not cities proud with spires and turrets crown'd,
Nor bays, and broad-armed ports,
	Where, laughing at the storm, rich navies ride;
Nor starred nor spangled courts,
	Where low brow'd baseness wafts perfume to pride!
No; Men, high-minded men-
	*	*	*	*	*	*	*	*
	Men, who their duties know,
But know their rights, and, knowing, dare maintain"
						Sir William Jones.
