How did the Great Depression affect Alabama?

Answer

The Great Depression brought horrible suffering to the people of Alabama. During the early years of the Depression, both private charity and state relief were overwhelmed by the magnitude of suffering in Alabama. Families were disrupted. During a four-month period in 1933, detectives working for the L&N Railroad expelled more than 27,200 transients illegally riding freight trains within the state's borders. Almost half of them were teens. Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal programs provided drastic relief to Alabama.
