Memoirs of Mrs. Clay of Alabama, Covering Social and Political Life in Washington and the South, 1853-66 -This memoir of a remarkable southern woman gives us an unusual eyewitness account of events in Washington and Richmond before, during, and after the Civil War. At the age of 75, Virginia Clay-Clopton drew from her voluminous letters and family papers to compose her memoirs to give readers a new appreciation of the events and the individuals who moved in the social and political worlds of Montgomery, Huntsville, Washington, and Richmond in the 1850s and 1860s.

Alabama: The History of a Deep South State Alabama: The History of a Deep South State by Willian Warren Rogers, Robert David Ward, Leah Rawls Atkins, Wayne Flint
This work is solid and most welcome. The authors deserve congratulations for their range of coverage, their honesty, and their sensitivity. A comprehensive historical survey of Alabama from its pre-contact aboriginal inhabitants to the present, this book is divided into three sections; the first up to conclusion of the Civil War, the second ending with the beginning of the Jazz Age and the third up to 1993. This is great Alabama history and will benefit general readers, students, and scholars for years to come.
The Tragedy and the Triumph of Phenix City, Alabama The Tragedy and the Triumph of Phenix City, Alabama by Margaret Anne Barnes
In 1954 organized crime that controlled Phenix City, Alabama, arranged for the assassination of Alabama Attorney General-elect Albert Patterson. Patterson's murder followed in the wake of his efforts to clean up the small city on the Alabama-Georgia state line. In the first chronological narrative of these events ever published, Margaret Anne Barnes tells the true story of how economic hard times in the Depression led a mayor to barter immunity from prosecution to gamblers and gangsters in exchange for money to save the town from going into receivership.
