With a 2009 population of 239,650, Birmingham is the largest city in Alabama. The city was founded in 1871, at the close of the Civil War and the rise of the Industrial Revolution. Bearing the moniker “Pittsburgh of the South,” it was the southern hub for steel and iron production. In the 1960s, Birmingham became famous for nonviolent Civil Rights protests led in part by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., which rocked the nation and spurred the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
