MEDIA REVIEWS

"Alabama has had five different capitals since becoming a territory in 1818: a territorial one at St. Stephens, and four state capitals, at Huntsville, Cahawba, Tuscaloosa, and Montgomery. Brantley's volume examines minutely the development of government at the first three of these during the years 1818-1826. Politics in early Alabama was excited by the issue of the location of the seat of government, since that issue served as a focal point for regional rivalries among the Alabama, Tombigbee, and Tennessee river valleys. Brantley's discussion thus becomes intertwined with other political issues of the time, making his book in fact a detailed political history of the state's early years. "Brantley's work is history of high quality, and the original 1947 edition is reproduced exactly here with an added introduction by Malcolm C. McMillan. The quality of reproduction, including that of the color maps, is excellent. The volume belongs in all Alabama libraries and in research collections on Southern history."--"Reprint Bulletin"
