Formed as a territory on March 3, 1817, Alabama became the nation’s 22nd state on Dec. 14, 1819. ALABAMA 200, the official bicentennial celebration, will include activities for all ages and interests. To commemorate this special milestone school programs, a “pastport” to the state’s historic places, traveling exhibitions and festivals have been developed to engage both Alabamians and visitors to our great state. For more information about the nation’s only three-year bicentennial celebration, visit the ALABAMA 200 website.
