Montgomery is the capital, second most populous city, and the fourth most populous metropolitan area in Alabama. It is located southeast of the center of the state, in the Gulf Coastal Plain.
The city was incorporated in 1819, as a merger of two towns situated along the Alabama River. It became the state capital in 1846. In February 1861, Montgomery was selected as the first capital of the Confederate States of America, until the seat of government moved to Richmond, Virginia in May of that year.
