Amazing Places To Travel – Birmingham Alabama

Birmingham was founded in 1871, during the post-Civil War Reconstruction period, through the merger of three pre-existing farm towns, notably, former Elyton. It grew from there, annexing many more of its smaller neighbors, into an industrial and railroad transportation center with a focus on mining, the iron and steel industry, and railroading. Birmingham was named for Birmingham, England, United Kingdom; one of the UK’s major industrial cities. More info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birmingham,_Alabama
