Digital Collections: Local and Alabama History

Overview & Notes

This page contains links to collection helpful in researching Tuscaloosa and Alabama history, as well as collections that represent daily life in the city and state. A few collections reference Mississippi Territory, which Alabama was a part of from the late eighteenth century until 1817, when Mississippi became a state and Alabama became its own territory. Alabama became a state in 1819.

For Tuscaloosa history, see also the tab for UA history -- town and gown are often intertwined.

And just a reminder: Tuscaloosa history and daily life are also Alabama history and daily life. They've just been highlighted here for ease of discovery.
