Alabama's future capital came into existence in 1819 by the merger of two towns, East Alabama and New Philadelphia, it became the incorporated town of Montgomery, named for General Richard Montgomery. For a short time the city held the title of capital of the Confederacy. In 1846 Montgomery became the state capital.

Today Montgomery is the second-largest city in the Yellowhammer State (Alabama) with a population of 200,600 inhabitants (in 2015), 374,000 people live in its metropolitan area.

The city is home to the Alabama State University, one of the historically black universities, the Troy University (Montgomery campus), and the Auburn University at Montgomery. The city has a large military presence due to Maxwell Air Force Base.
