About Alabama

While Alabama, the "Heart of Dixie," may be known for its agricultural history, today its economic heart beats along with the aerospace and manufacturing industries. Redstone Arsenal and NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center near Huntsville, Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Boeing facilities throughout the state -- these high-flying hubs of business are balanced by the growing automotive presence of Honda, Hyundai, Mercedes-Benz, and Toyota factories. The Talladega Superspeedway, home to NASCAR events, is the sixth largest stadium in America. Historically, Alabama was a center of civil rights activism in the 1960s; culturally, it is one of the most Evangelical Christian states in the nation.
